5 to 11-year-olds invited to get a COVID-19 vaccine

Posted on April 6th, 2022

The NHS is inviting children aged 5 to 11 to book their COVID-19 vaccination or visit a local drop-in clinic.

The COVID-19 vaccine is now available to all children aged 5 and over – simply find a local drop-in clinic or book an appointment at: www.nhs.uk/covidvaccination or call 119.

Children aged 5 to 11 are being offered two smaller 10mcg doses of the Pfizer vaccine, with the second dose available 12 weeks after the first for most children.

However, children with a condition that means they’re at high risk from COVID-19 or who live with someone who has a weakened immune system can get a second dose from 8 weeks after their first.

The local NHS is encouraging families in Liverpool to grab a jab ahead of the Easter holidays to avoid any disruption due to illness.

Alder Hey are holding a drop-in vaccination clinic for children aged 5 and above this weekend – you can simply walk in or book and appointment via the NHS website:

Date: Saturday 9th & Sunday 10th April

Time: 9am – 4pm

At: Institute in the Park, Alder Hey Children’s Hospital, Eaton Road, L12 2AP

Alternatively, you can find a full list of local drop-in clinics across the city which are offering vaccines for 5 to 11-year-olds at: www.liverpoolccg.nhs.uk/drop-in-vaccination

You can also find pre-bookable appointments for 5 to 11-year-olds at www.nhs.uk/covidvaccination – if you can’t find one near to where you live, please keep checking back as more appointments will be added.
