To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, when the Government plans to make an announcement on the provision of covid-19 vaccination to children aged five to 11 who are clinically extremely vulnerable or a close family member of someone who is immunosuppressed.
20 January 2022
General practitioners (GPs) and hospital consultants are currently identifying eligible children and the National Health Service will contact their parents or carers. GPs will contact immunosuppressed individuals to advise that their family member is eligible for vaccination. We expect deployment to begin by the end of January 2022 with appointments offered by the NHS locally.
