Covid-19 vaccine for 5 to 11 year olds

While all children aged 5 to 11 are now to be offered a Covid-19 vaccination please note that this will not be happening until April. Please don’t contact us now as we do not have vaccine at the practice and NHS partners across Oxfordshire are still planning how best to deliver this vaccination offer for those who wish to take it up.

This information is provided for our patients following the government announcement on 16th February saying that a non-urgent offer of vaccines for all children aged 5 to 11 was being made following acceptance of advice from the independent Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JVCI). The Health Secretary stated that children in this group are at low risk of serious illness from Covid-19 and the vaccination offer is therefore about increasing protection against potential future waves of Covid-19.

Parents and children will receive details of the vaccine offer as more information become available.

Thank you for helping us to help you.
