Information regarding young people and eligibility for Covid-19 booster vaccines

Posted on February 1st, 2022

Covid-19 Booster vaccines to be offered to young people aged 16 to 17 and 12 to 15 who are in a clinical risk group, SMI or who are a household contact

Following updated JCVI Guidance, the NHS is now offering boosters to all 16 and 17 year olds, and 12 to 15 year olds who are in a clinical risk group, are severely immunosuppressed or who are a household contact of someone who is.

It’s vital these groups receive a booster vaccination to protect themselves and those around them from COVID-19, especially with the Omicron variant in circulation.

All 16 to 17 year olds can now book their booster vaccine using the National Booking Service or attending a walk in site.

12 to 15 year olds in a clinical risk group or who are severely immunosuppressed will be contacted by local vaccination services or can visit a walk-in site by taking either a national invitation letter or an invitation from their GP/specialist confirming eligibility.

Both groups should visit NHS walk-in sites before attending their local walk in site in person to ensure they attend a site which can vaccinate them.
