A vaccination clinic will take place at QEII High School in Peel next week for 16 and 17 year-olds.
The clinic will be open from 2pm – 3.30pm on Thursday 2 September for teens to receive the Pfizer vaccine.
Anyone wishing to attend should ensure they are registered with 111 via this link and bring proof of identification. They should book an appointment by calling 111. Those who arrive and are not pre-registered with 111 or who do not have an appointment risk not being vaccinated that day.
Teens aged 16 and 17 who are household contacts of an immunosuppressed person will be offered two doses of the vaccine in line with the adult rollout and will be invited to register in the coming days.
Additionally, 17-year olds who are within three months of turning 18 will be offered a second dose appointment, this being confirmed shortly after their first dose.
