NHS invites 12-15s to grab a jab at half term

A petting zoo, family fun days and a skate park are just some of the attractions lined up by NHS and volunteers to get 12 to 15-year-olds vaccinated during the half term.

As many schools break up for half term, the NHS is sending invites to parents of more than one million 12 to 15-year-olds reminding them to come forward for their jab, with over 770,000 appointments available for this age group.

Since the biggest and fastest vaccination rollout in NHS history expanded to children and young people, the NHS has delivered over 2.1 million vaccinations to people aged 12-15, including over 1.5 million first doses.

Youngsters who book their jab at North East Surrey College of Technology in Epsom will also get the opportunity to meet some sheep at a pop-up petting zoo which will be held at the site at the weekend.
