Walk-in clinics for 12-17 year olds
Walk-in clinics are being held for people aged 12-17 to receive either their first or second dose of the COVID vaccine.
The clinics, held at Chester Street vaccine hub in Douglas between 09:30 – 13:00, will be on Saturday 11 December and Saturday 18 December.
In order to receive a second dose, at least 12 weeks needs to have passed since their first dose.
Individuals wanting to attend either clinic will need to ensure that they are registered with 111 before attending.
People aged 16 and 17 are able to register for themselves, while parents or guardians of children aged 12-15 are asked to register online for their child to receive a vaccine and that they attend the clinic with their child in order to give their consent at the point of vaccination.
Alternatively, it is possible that a child can give their own consent if they can clearly demonstrate an understanding of the treatment including the benefits and risks, and have the ability to explain their reasoning to the vaccinator.
