Dear Parents and Carers,

We recently visited your child’s school to offer COVID-19 Vaccinations.  If your child wasn’t vaccinated on this day and you would still like them to receive their COVID vaccination, there are additional opportunities for them to have this, which are detailed below.

Extra appointments will be added on a regular basis as they become available.

Additional ‘Pop Up’ session will be added, details will be published on the EPUT Facebook page and website:  https://eput.nhs.uk/news-events/coronavirus/coronavirus-vaccine/walk-in-clinics-pfizer/

Please be aware that it is now also recommended that young people under 18 years of age do not have a COVID-19 vaccine within 12 weeks of testing positive for COVID-19 unless they are clinically vulnerable or live with someone who is immunocompromised.

Second dose appointments are also now available for 16 & 17 year olds 12 weeks after their first dose. Please note, this MUST be booked through the Mass Vaccination sites (details above). The Immunisation Team do not vaccinate 16 & 17 year olds.

If you have any queries, please contact the relevant Immunisation Team at the contacts below.  We ask for your patience if there are delays in getting through, this is due to the high number of enquiries we are currently receiving:

0300 790 0597 – Essex

0300 790 0594 – Bedford, Luton and Milton Keynes

Once again thank you for your patience and understanding while we work to make sure every eligible child receives their COVID-19 vaccine as soon as possible.

 

Yours faithfully,

 

Essex Partnership University Trust Immunisation Service.
