Commissioner's message regarding vaccines for 12 to 15 year-olds

Arrow Icon

‘I welcome the Government's decision to give a younger age group and their families the choice to access the Covid-19 vaccination programme. However, it is vital that this choice is communicated directly to children in a friendly and accessible way. It is also important that there is no stigma attached to the choices that children make about whether or not they wish to receive the vaccination.’ For more information on consent, follow the link below to the Commissioner’s formal advice to the Government on this issue.
