Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent parents and carers the chance to find out more about Vaccinations


Parents and carers in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent who would like to know more about COVID-19 vaccinations for children aged 12-15 can join a special webinar taking place on Monday (February 7).

The free online event, being organised by the Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent NHS Vaccination Programme, starts at 7pm and will feature local clinicians and members of the school vaccination service, who will be on hand to offer information about the vaccines, give updates on local services and answer any questions that people might have.

Dr Paddy Hannigan, Clinical Lead for the vaccination programme in Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent, said: “Children aged 12 to 15 are now able to have two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine and we are urging them to get both jabs as soon as they are able, to protect themselves and their loved ones and prevent the spread of the Coronavirus.

“However, we appreciate that parents and guardians are very protective of their children’s health and that some people still have questions about the vaccine. This webinar will give you the opportunity to find out more and have your questions answered.

“Millions of people, including children aged 12-15, have now received their COVID-19 vaccines and they are safe and effective. Getting vaccinated against COVID-19 gives you and your loved ones the peace of mind that you are as well protected as possible.”

Some of the questions to be covered by the webinar will include:

  • Is it safe for my child?

  • Why does my child need it?

  • What are the side effects?

  • What consent is needed?

  • Can I take my child on holiday without the vaccine?

The webinar will take place via Microsoft Teams and can be watched via your internet browser, such as Google Chrome. If you would like to join, please click here on Monday 7 February 2022 at 7pm.

Up-to-date details and times for all Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent COVID-19 vaccination walk-in clinics can be found at https://www.twbstaffsandstoke.org.uk/coronavirus/how-to-get-a-vaccine-where-and-travelling

You don’t need to be registered with a GP or have an NHS number to get your jab, but it will be quicker if you do, so take that information with you if you can.

Appointments for vaccines can also be booked online through the National Booking System by visiting www.nhs.uk, or by calling 119.

Don’t miss out. Get vaccinated and get protected.
