Vaccinations for Children

The NHS now recommends that children between five and eleven who are considered high risk to Covid-19, or those who live with an immunocompromised person, are offered two paediatric doses of the vaccine eight weeks apart. 

Children most at risk of complications from Covid-19 infection include those with:

  • Severe neuro-disabilities
  • Immunosuppression
  • Multiple or severe learning disabilities
  • On the learning disability register
  • Those with Down’s syndrome
  • Those with long term serious conditions affecting their body. 

Children with a very severely weakened immune system may need a third dose eight weeks after their second.
