The Health Services Directorate distributed information leaflets and consent forms this week to parents/guardians of children aged 5-11 years old.  The letter/consent forms offer the Paediatric COVID-19 vaccination to be administered within the coming weeks.  

Following feedback from these parents/guardians requesting more time to consider this offer- the Health Services would like to advise that the date for consent forms to be returned has been extended to Monday, 7 March 2022. 

Parents are reminded that there are contact details included within the letter should they require further information or consultation before giving consent to vaccinate their child.
