RE: Offer of further opportunities to take up the COVID-19 Vaccination for 12-15 year olds

Dear Parents and Carers,

Covid vaccinations are now taking place for 12-15 year olds across North West London including at your child’s school. All 12-15 year olds are being offered one dose of COVID vaccine.

We are aware that there are some children who were unable to be vaccinated on the day we were at their school for various reasons including:

• A large number of eligible children meaning it may not have been possible to vaccinate all 12-15 year olds on the day of clinic - If this included your child then we’d like to apologise for any inconvenience caused;

• They may have been unable to attend school on the day due to illness;

• Your child may have tested positive for COVID and was not eligible on the day as there needs to be 28-days between getting a positive COVID test and being able to take up the COVID-19 vaccination;

• or they were not aged 12 on the day the clinic took place but have subsequently turned 12 and are now eligible.

Similarly, you may home educate your child and would now like the opportunity to take up the vaccine but need to know how and where to go to get your child vaccinated.

In order to ensure that every child gets the opportunity to take up the vaccine, our vaccination team will be operating clinics during the October half-term at the locations listed below:

Location: Oak Wood Secondary School, Sutton Ct Rd, Uxbridge, UB10 9HT
Date: Monday 25th October Time: 9am to 5pm


Location: Barra Hall Children's Centre, Wood End Green Road, Hayes, UB3 2SA Date: Wednesday 27th October Time: 9am to 2pm

You don’t need to book a slot, you can simply turn up and walk-in on the day. However, please can we ask you to:

• Provide consent: we will need parents or legal guardian to sign the attached consent form and bring it with them, even if you have already previously done so. If you are unable to print the consent form in advance a copy will be available at the clinic.

• Ensure that your child is accompanied on the day of clinic: please make sure that your child is accompanied by a parent or legal guardian, ideally by whomever has signed the consent form.

Depending on demand there may be a short queue, but we will aim to see children as soon as possible.

In addition to the clinics running during half-half term, you may be invited by your GP to vaccination clinics they are running. It is your choice where to go, but please remember that 12-15 year olds will only receive one dose of the vaccine.

Once again thank you for your understanding while we work to make sure every eligible child in NW London who wishes to receive their COVID-19 vaccine does so as soon as possible.

Yours sincerely
NWL vaccination team
