Contact: Write to the JVCI about Vaccines for Clinically Vulnerable Children
17 June 2021
National charity Contact have prepared a template letter for parents / carers who want the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) to recommend offering a Covid-19 vaccine as soon as possible to children with underlying health conditions / who are clinically vulnerable.
"In a joint press conference with the prime minister last night, Professor Chris Whitty spoke about the need to vaccinate children at high risk of Covid-19 as a priority. This is welcome in a debate that has largely focused on vaccinating children to protect adults.
We want the JCVI to prioritise clinically vulnerable children and children with underlying health conditions for Covid-19 vaccines, particularly now the use of Pfizer in over-12s has received safety approval from the MHRA."
