The NHS is now offering COVID-19 vaccines to children aged 5 to 11 years. Appointments are being held in dedicated children’s clinics across our area and can be booked online via the National Booking Service or by calling 119. Some walk-in clinics are also available and details of these, along with information about all the vaccination options in our area, can be found at www.grabajab.net.
Children’s clinics are being run by GPs, community pharmacies and the Vaccination Centre @ UWE Bristol, where themed child-friendly pods have been created to make the Centre feel welcoming for young children.
Younger children receive a lower (paediatric) vaccine dose. More information about the vaccination and the effects of COVID-19 in young children can be found here.
