People who are immunosuppressed have a weaker immune system. They are more likely to have poorer outcomes if they get infected with COVID-19.
Vaccinating household contacts will help limit the spread of the virus.
First and second doses of the COVID-19 vaccine
If you are aged 12 and over and have not had your first or second dose of your vaccine, please contact your health board.
The NHS are vaccinating children aged 5 to 11 who are:
- in a clinical risk group
- household contacts of an immunosuppressed person (gov.uk)
Children aged 5 to 11 will be given a paediatric dose of the vaccine.
Children aged 5 to 11 who are in a clinical risk group will be called by their health board for their vaccine.
Request a vaccine (nhs.uk) for a child aged 5 to 11 who is a household contact of someone who is immunosuppressed.
Household contacts of the immunosuppressed aged 12 and over are eligible for a booster vaccine. They should come forward when given an appointment.
