Gphp Hub will be inviting at-risk children aged between 12 and 15 years old, who are clinically vulnerable to Covid-19 or live with adults who are at increased risk of serious illness from the virus, to have their vaccine.

Those who are eligible include children with Down’s syndrome, or who are undergoing many cancer treatments, had organ or bone marrow transplants or who are on the learning disability register.

The Covid-19 vaccine will also be offered to children aged 12 and over, who live with someone who is immunosuppressed, such as those receiving chemotherapy or who have had a transplant.
