NHS East Riding of Yorkshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has confirmed that vaccination sites have been launched in the East Riding for children aged five to 11 with no underlying health conditions to be offered two paediatric (child) doses of the Pfizer vaccine, with 12 weeks between doses. Letters from the NHS are being sent to parents/guardians in the local authority inviting them to book their child’s first vaccine.
Parents have been able to book some local pharmacies on the national NHS booking site, but they will now also have the option of attending a walk-in vaccine clinic (see forthcoming dates for the Easter holidays below), as long as their child is aged five years old or above.
Visit nhs.uk/covidvaccine for more information or to book an appointment online.
