Dear Parents/Carers,

The NHS in Kent and Medway is now offering the COVID-19 vaccine to eligible children aged 5 to 11-years-old who:

  • are at higher risk from coronavirus due to underlying health conditions or
  • share living accommodation, on most days, with someone who has a weakened immune system

You can find more information about this here:

COVID-19 vaccinations: A guide for parents of children aged 5-11 at high risk.

If they have an eligible child, parents will be invited to bring them to have the vaccine by their GP practice, a local vaccination service linked to their GP practice, or the NHS School-Aged Immunisation Service (SAIS).

Parents can either book an appointment directly with their GP, or click here to book in with any provider. Eligibility will be checked at the venue.

Kind Regards,

NHS Kent and Medway
