Second dose of vaccine coming for 12 to 15-year-olds in Devon

Published: 8 February 2022

Time for the second dose of vaccine for 12 to 15-year-olds

Many 12 to 15-year-olds in Devon have already had their first dose of the vaccine, either at their school or by attending a vaccination centre

School nurse teams are visiting schools over the coming weeks to offer second doses or first doses if still needed, so look out for the dates. Like last time, parents or carers will be asked to give their consent to have the second dose. 

Remember though, second doses can only be given at least 12 weeks after the first dose or 12 weeks after a positive test result. If your child is aged 12 to 15 and it’s been longer than 12 weeks since their first dose, they can wait to have their second jab at school, or can attend a vaccination centre with or without an appointment.  

And with infections so high particularly among young people, if you are not showing symptoms please continue to use lateral flow tests twice a week, and daily if identified as a contact of someone who has tested positive for coronavirus.
