Advice regarding Covid 19

Tuesday 8th March, 2022

 

Further advice for Parents regarding vaccinations for 5 - 11 year olds.

 

Information for parents and carers on COVID-19 vaccination for at risk 5 to 11 year olds

Please share the following information with parents and carers of at risk 5 to 11 year olds.

Children aged 5 to 11 years who are in a clinical risk group or who live with someone who is immunosuppressed can get the COVID-19 vaccine, in line with advice set out by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI). Eligible children include those with diabetes, immunosuppression, learning disabilities, and other conditions as outlined by the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) in the Green Book.

Vaccinations help to increase protection against COVID-19, which is particularly important for those with underlying health conditions.

Further information is available in the guide for parents of children aged 5 to 11 years published by UKHSA. We have published some frequently asked questions on the vaccination programme including information on eligibility, accessibility and advice for parents of children at high risk from COVID-19. Following advice from the JCVI, healthy 5 to 11 year old children will also be offered two 10 microgram doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. The NHS will prepare to extend this non-urgent offer to all children during April.

Dear Parents and Carers,

 

We have received some information for parents who have clinically vulnerable children between the ages of 5 and 11.

 

Please see below for details regarding FAQs and vaccinations.

Dear Parents and Carers,

 

We have received new advice from Suffolk County Council and Public Health and Communities. The advice is going to be reviewed weekly. In this interests of transparency we have decided to put this advice on the School Website so that parents can see the basis we are making our decisions on.
