COVID Vaccination Programme for 12 - 15 year olds

We are now able to confirm with you the details for the upcoming COVID-19 vaccination programme taking place across all secondary schools in England, for 12 to 15 year olds.

In summary the guidance tells us the following:

  • 12 to 15 year olds are being offered the vaccine.
  • Consent will be sought by the SAIS (School Age Immunisation Service) provider from the parent or person with parental responsibility in the same way as for any other school vaccination programme.
  • Children who are 12 years old and over on the day the SAIS team visits the school, will be offered a vaccination as part of the in-school vaccination programme.
  • Significantly, the SAIS will be the primary provider of the vaccination programme for healthy 12 to 15 year olds and will be legally responsible for the delivery of the vaccine. Legal accountability for offering COVID-19 vaccines to children and young people sits with the SAIS and not with the school.
  • Vaccines will be administered by healthcare staff working closely with the school and following the usual approach to school-based immunisation.
  • The SAIS provider will be contractually responsible for the service, as they are for other school vaccination programmes.

John Ferneley College will be offering 12 to 15 year olds a vaccination session on Monday 7th and Tuesday 8th March 2022 for either the 1st or 2nd vaccination.  Please find an NHS information letter and online consent form below for parents/guardians to read and action consent.

The vaccine will NOT be offered at school to any young person without parent/guardian consent. You will need to consent again for the second dose of the vaccine.

Please note:

  • Only students whose parent/guardian have sent consent for will receive the vaccination.
