If you are attending a pre booked appointment or attending one of our drop in clinics please be patient as our teams are working incredibly hard to ensure this huge task is achieved as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Those 18+ who have tested positive for Covid-19 must wait 28 days after a positive test to get any dose of the Covid-19 vaccine.

Children and young people aged 12 to 17 years who have tested positive for Covid-19 must wait 12 weeks after a positive test to get any dose of the Covid-19 vaccine.

It is important for children and young people and their parents or carers to discuss the information in this leaflet and come to a decision together. Parents and carers are invited to accompany their children to the vaccination clinic and will have the opportunity to ask questions and to discuss the benefits and risks of the vaccine.
