In December 2021, all School Aged Immunisation Service providers in England were asked to deliver in-school COVID-19 vaccinations to 12 to 15 year olds in the 2022 spring term. In addition to in-school provision, local vaccination sites have been made available with longer appointment times which can accommodate the needs of children and families. Invitations have been issued with information on appointments and vaccination sites available through the National Booking Service. While no further national schools-based programme is currently planned, children and their parents or carers will be encouraged to access vaccination through community vaccination services.
