COVID-19 vaccinations for children and young people

Clinics for children and young people

The COVID-19 vaccine continues to offer the best protection for people particularly at risk of serious illness from COVID-19, due to a health condition or because of a weakened immune system.

The advice on eligibility for children and young people is similar to last spring, but with the age of individuals who are immunosuppressed now eligible from aged 6 months and over – compared with 5 years and over in 2023. This follows updated advice last April on COVID-19 vaccination of children aged 6 months to 4 years in a clinical risk group.

Children’s clinics will be available at our larger local vaccination clinics. You can check your child's eligibility and book online at nhs.uk/get-vaccine. You do not need to be invited to book your COVID spring vaccine.

 

Sensory rooms 

Relaxing, dedicated spaces are available at our King's park and Linden unit vaccination centres for young people and adults with learning disabilities or severe mental health conditions or anyone that needs a little extra support. 

Our sensory rooms provide a calm, quiet space away from the communal waiting area that may be noisy or cause anxiety. Find out more in our news story.

 

 

Can I walk in to get an appointment?

Booking is advised at your preferred clinic and ensures you will be seen on that day. Please note the National Booking Service is open from the 9 April.

Some walk in appointments may be available at pharmacies offering the COVID-19 vaccine. 

Find a pharmacy offering walk-in COVID-19 appointments here. 


Additional support

Our staff are on hand to talk through any additional needs you or your loved one may have prior or during your appointment.
