Children aged 5 -17 who are at serious risk from the complications of COVID-19 and their family are now able to have their covid vaccination. It’s really important that children who are at risk from COVID -19 have their vaccination to keep themselves safe.
Children at serious risk from the complications of COVID-19 include those:
• with severe neurodisabilities
• those whose immune systems don’t work as well
• who have profound and multiple or severe learning disabilities
• on the learning disability register
• who live with Down’s syndrome
• with long term serious conditions affecting their body.
