5-11 year olds vaccines
We all want to get back to normal, and for our children to go to school, do the things they love and catch up on lost time with friends and family. From this week, all children aged 5-11 can get their free COVID-19 vaccine. Book online or call 119: www.nhs.uk/covidvaccine
The COVID-19 vaccine helps protect children and young people against serious COVID-19 infection and reduces their risk of passing infection on to others. If they have already had coronavirus, the vaccine will top up their natural immunity. www.sussexhealthandcare.uk/covid-vaccination-5-to-11
COVID-19 hasn't gone away. Help protect your child from missing out on their education and the things they enjoy. Book their vaccine online at www.nhs.uk/covidvaccine or call 119.
For most children, COVID-19 is a mild illness that may require a few days off school but rarely leads to complications. For some, the symptoms can be more serious or last longer. Don't let them miss out. 5-11 year olds can now get their COVID-19 vaccine. www.sussexhealthandcare.uk/covid-vaccination-5-to-11
For decades, vaccinations have protected children from potentially serious diseases, including measles, flu, Meningitis and mumps. The COVID-19 vaccine is one more vaccine that children can now have to protect them from illness. Book online www.nhs.uk/covidvaccine or call 119.
5-11 year olds are now eligible for their COVID-19 vaccination. Book them in at a time convenient for you. Go online to www.nhs.uk/covidvaccine or call 119.

Missing or incorrect vaccination records
The Vaccine Data Resolution Service (VDRS) aims to resolve missing or incorrect vaccination records for people vaccinated in England who have a current NHS number and are registered with a GP practice in England. This can be accessed by calling 119 and asking to be referred to the Vaccine Data Resolution Service.
Unfortunately, this will not help those who were vaccinated abroad whose records do not yet appear on the NHS app. GP practices are assured that a process is being worked on to enable vaccines administered abroad to appear in NHS records as proof of vaccination.
For all vaccine queries, please call 119, please do not call your GP Practice
