Frequently Asked Questions for parents and carers of eligible children aged 5-11

This page answers the key questions about the COVID-19 vaccination for parents and carers of eligible children aged 5-11.

If your child is aged 5-11, they are eligible for a vaccination. The NHS will contact you to invite you to book your child's vaccinations, either through the National Booking System or in some cases with your local GP practice. If you wish to book through the National Booking System, you can do so through www.nhs.uk/covidvaccine or by calling 119.

Some walk-in clinics in our area now also offer vaccinations on a walk-in basis for children aged 5-11. Visit our walk-in page here to find a full list of walk-in clinics available near you. A list of the walk-in options that are available on a daily basis for children aged 5-11 is provided below.

If you've had a positive COVID-19 test, you need to wait before getting the COVID-19 vaccine.

People aged 18 and over, and children and young people aged 5 to 17 at high risk from COVID-19, need to wait 4 weeks.

Children and young people aged 5 to 17 who are not at high risk from COVID-19 need to wait 12 weeks.

If you or your child have symptoms of COVID-19, but have not had a test, you should wait until your symptoms are better before you get the vaccine. You can talk to a healthcare professional at the vaccination site about this.

Our colleagues at Cambridgeshire Community Services (CCS) NHS Trust have also put together a very helpful video which can support you to explain the vaccination process to your child. You can view this video here.
