Age 5 to 11

Last updated 1 April 2022

If you have a child aged 5-11, they’re now eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine.

For most children, COVID-19 is a mild illness and rarely leads to complications. However, small numbers of children could have complications that may result in admission to hospital. This risk is higher if the children have some underlying health conditions. Getting vaccinated is a safe and effective way to protect them against serious illness and hospitalisation with COVID-19. 

The first and most important step is to make sure you’re getting information about COVID-19 from trusted sources.
