5 to 11-year-olds were invited to receive their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine in April 2022 and can get vaccinated at a large number of vaccination centres and community pharmacies across the capital.

COVID-19 vaccination appointments for people of all ages can be booked via the online booking service or by calling 119, and walk ins are also available.

Since COVID-19 vaccinations were rolled out for children and young people, there has been extensive work across London engaging with parents, guardians, families and children and young people themselves to provide information about the COVID-19 vaccine, address any concerns and help parents, guardians and children make an informed decision on vaccination.
