All schools in Lincolnshire to hold vaccination sessions so children can be vaccinated
All Lincolnshire schools will hold vaccination sessions by the end of November so all 12–15-year-olds can receive their vaccination.
The Vaccination programme which started last month is being carried out by the School Age Immunisations Service (SAIS).
The Government believe the quickest way to vaccinate children is by holding vaccination sessions in school. The aim is to have all children in Lincolnshire vaccinated by the end of November.
Lincolnshire’s Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has said they are on track to meet their target.
One area that is struggling with the COVID pandemic is Boston. Official figures reveal that Boston still has the least vaccinated people in Lincolnshire.
By launching the school children vaccination programme in Lincolnshire and the UK, it is hoped to avoid another wave of the pandemic and a potential 3rd Lockdown.
However, not all parents are convinced their children should receive the vaccine. In some parts of the country, some parents have threatened to take the Government to court if their children are vaccinated without their permission.
