Vulnerable teenagers should get their first dose completed in August
The Scottish Government has said it is aiming to ensure the first doses of the Covid-19 vaccine will be received by vulnerable teens by the end of August.
Announcing plans two weeks ago, the First Minister has said that some 12-17-year-olds will be eligible to receive their first dose.
Vulnerable groups include those with Down’s Syndrome, learning difficulties, are immunosuppressed or live with someone who is.
It is hoped that the first doses of the vaccine will be given this month, with offers to be made before August 16 – when most schools in Scotland return
Health Secretary Humza Yousaf said: “These children and young people will be able to get the vaccine in the most appropriate setting for their situation. This may be in their own home or a care setting, or at a clinic, depending on their care or health needs.
“I would urge any parent or carer who has a child or young person eligible for a vaccine to visit NHS Inform where they can find the most up-to-date information; and read the leaflet that they will receive with their letter or from their health board.
