12 to 15-year-old vaccination programme

Vaccinations for 12 to 15-year-olds are not currently available at Bury’s four vaccination clinics.

 

For pupils aged 12 to 15 who have consent for a Covid-19 vaccination in school but missed the session previously arranged at school, catch up vaccination sessions have been organised with schools. Alternatively, vaccinations for 12 to 15-year-olds can be booked at external vaccination clinics via the National Booking Service: www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/book-coronavirus-vaccination/ or by calling 119.
