The Arun district ranks 22nd in terms of the least vaccinated districts in the South East and the 151st least vaccinated in England.

A NHS England spokesperson said: “The fastest and largest vaccine drive in NHS history has vaccinated more than 260,000 five to 11-year-olds whose parents have decided to take up this offer, since it went live less than four weeks ago, following the JCVI’s recommendation of a non-urgent offer.

“Getting vaccinated is a personal choice between families and their children, and we have now sent invites to everyone eligible, including to the parents of one million children aged five and six last week – with people able to book an appointment via the National Booking System.”

You can make an appointment for your child at a children’s vaccination clinic in your local Health and Social Care Trust using the online booking system at covid-19.hscni.net/get-vaccinated. You may be able to attend without an appointment.
