NHS teams are going into hundreds of secondary schools this week to deliver Covid-19 vaccinations to 12 to 15-year-olds. Three million youngsters are now eligible for the Pfizer vaccine after chief medical officer Professor Chris Whitty gave the programme the go-ahead. Schools are sending out consent letters to parents, in line with current standard practice for childhood vaccinations such as HPV. The Covid vaccines are being delivered by around 60 School Age Immunisation Services across the country, which have teams made up of clinical staff such as paediatric nurses and school nurses.
