Advice from Community School Age Immunisation Service 13.01.2022

This would be in the event where a child missed the opportunity to be vaccinated for Covid-19 (1st or 2nd doses) at a school session, as arranged by the Community School Age Immunisation Service run by Hertfordshire Community NHS Trust.

What to do if your 12-15 year-old child missed their appointment at school to receive their Covid vaccination

If for any reason your child missed the opportunity to receive their vaccination at school, or were declined their vaccination because they tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 12 weeks, you have the following alternative options. You will need to accompany your child to any venues offering the vaccination to give consent:

Booking vaccination appointments online

You can book your child's 1st dose online from the day they turn 12. You can usually book their 2nd dose from 24 hours after they had their 1st dose. You'll be offered appointment dates from 12 weeks after their 1st dose. Book a COVID-19 vaccination appointment

Getting the vaccine at a walk-in vaccination site

Your child can get a 1st dose at a walk-in COVID-19 vaccination site from the day they turn 12. They can get a 2nd dose if it's been 12 weeks since their 1st dose. Find a walk-in COVID-19 vaccination site

We are testing twice at the beginning of the Autumn term using the lateral flow tests previously used during the pandemic. 

If your child is presenting with Covid symptoms or has a positive result on a lateral flow test please take them to have a PCR test.

If however your child has tested positive within the last 90 days a PCR test should not be taken.
