Covid vaccination for children 5-11 years with specific underlying health conditions that put them at risk of severe COVID-19
Following JCVI guidance, the NHS has commenced offering first and second doses to eligible children aged 5 to 11 years old who are in a clinical at risk group or are household contacts of someone who is immunosuppressed. This age group is recommended to receive a paediatric formulation of the Pfizer vaccine, and therefore will be invited to dedicated children’s clinics.
We endeavour to give families a choice of venue that is appropriate and suitable for their circumstances.
We are holding a small number of dedicated children’s clinics at the following locations in Bromley.
- London Lane Clinic
- Oaks Park Medical Centre
- Orpington Health and Wellbeing Centre
- Other locations, including the Phoenix Centre
To book, please contact the vaccination services on the numbers here.
St Thomas’ Hospital clinics
There is also a clinic available for 5-11s in a clinical at risk group at St Thomas’ Hospital. The clinic is open 8.30am to 5.30pm, Monday to Saturday, and offers walk-in slots or advanced booking – email CovidVaccineBookings@gstt.nhs.uk.
If you have received a letter to say your child is eligible to receive a vaccine dose, please contact CovidVaccineBookings@gstt.nhs.uk to book a vaccine or you can just walk in.
For more details about who is at higher risk, and about the vaccination, please see the guide for parents of children aged 5 to 11 at high risk, available here.
What to expect after your child’s vaccination is available here.
If you have further questions, or think your child might be eligible under this group but has not yet been invited for an appointment, please contact the vaccination services who will be happy to give you further advice.
