Southern vaccine clinic for teens today

16 and 17-year-olds must have registered for jab

Teenagers will be given the Covid-19 vaccine at a clinic in the south of the Island today (5 September).

Sixteen and 17-year-olds, who have registered with 111 for an appointment, can get a Pfizer jab.

The clinic is taking place at Castle Rushen High School between 10am and 12pm.

So called 'healthy' teens will be given one vaccine dose as recommended by the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation.

Those within three months of their 18th birthday, who live with an immunosuppressed person or who have underlying health conditions, will also get a second dose in due course.
