SAIS Covid-19 vaccination programme for 12-15 year olds in schools will start from 10 January

From Monday 10 January, children aged 12-15 will be offered their 1st or 2nd dose of the Covid-19 vaccination in Nottinghamshire schools. Most children can get the 2nd dose from 12 weeks after their first dose.

School immunisation teams will visit your child's school to give the vaccine.

It is important that you give consent for your child to be vaccinated against Covid-19. You can consent online in advance of the vaccination date being announced at your school – you do not need to wait until the exact timings have been confirmed.

You can find the online consent form here – it should only take a minute to fill in.

Alternatively, this age group can book online or walk into certain vaccination clinics in Nottinghamshire without an appointment. Please visit the NHS website for further information.

  • Mansfield Vaccination Centre – Tuesday and Thursday 4.30pm-7.30pm
  • King's Mill Hospital – Monday – Sunday 8am-1.30pm
  • Forest Recreation Ground – Monday and Wednesday 4.30pm-7.30pm

Parents or guardians should attend the appointment to give their consent.

Please visit the NHS Nottingham and Nottinghamshire CCG website for further information about the vaccination for 12 – 15 year olds. In addition, a vaccination guide for young people is available on GOV.UK.

Has your child recently tested positive for Covid-19?

If your child has tested positive for Covid-19 and is not at high risk from Covid-19, they need to wait 12 weeks before they can have a Covid-19 vaccine. This starts from the date of their positive PCR test.
