The Covid vaccination has now been approved for all children aged 5 to 11 by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI). The Covid vaccination for the 5 to 11 age group is offered as a lower dose (10 micrograms) of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.
In London and the UK, we are experiencing an increase in Covid cases among the population and so it is important for all eligible groups to have the vaccine to help stop the virus from causing severe infection, particularly in young children, older age groups and the more clinically vulnerable.
In North West London, there are a number of ways in which to get your child vaccinated.
- A vaccination bus is on site at two Hillingdon primary schools for after school clinics (walk in) from 9 May onwards as follows:
- Monday and Tuesday 3-7pm
- Thursday and Friday 3-7pm
- Parents and Guardians can find a list of available sites through the Grab A Jab walk-in page. The grab a jab website is continually updated with new locations so we encourage you to check the website regularly.
