Encourage 16-17 year-olds to get vaccinated
All 16 and 17-year-olds in England are now eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine. We encourage pupils in this age group to get the vaccine as soon as they can so that they are protected when they return to school and college.
A number of vaccination sites across the Black Country and West Birmingham are now offering walk-in vaccines to young people aged between 16 and 17.
Young people aged between 16 and 17, with no underlying health conditions, are now eligible for a single dose of the Pfizer vaccine, which they can get now get at a number of walk-in vaccination sites.
Those turning 18 in three months or less, or aged between 16 to 18 and clinically vulnerable or work in health and social care, can book their first dose online now or use a local walk-in centre, with second doses available after eight weeks.
