    Covid vaccine clinics open for 12 – 15 year olds in Scotland from Monday

    Written by on September 14, 2021

    All 12 – 15-year-olds will be offered one dose of the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine in Scotland, the First Minister has confirmed.

    From Monday drop-in vaccine clinics will open across the country for this age group.

    The announcement from Nicola Sturgeon comes the day after all 4 of the UK’s chief medical officers concluded this group should be offered the jag.

    On September 27th, appointment letters will be sent out and finally, a vaccination programme will be rolled-out across schools.

    Speaking at Holyrood, the First Minister said:

    “In addition to the CMO advice on 12 – 15 years olds, we have received today the final JCVI advice on a vaccine booster programme.

    “This advice has been broadly endorsed by the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health. I am grateful to all four Chief Medical Officers for assessing the evidence on this issue with pace and also with rigour.”
