If an appointment is not available in your area currently, please continue to monitor the COVID-19 vaccine booking site.
Vaccines will also be offered in schools.
Further details will be available through your child’s school in the coming days.
Vaccines will be available in a variety of settings to give families options for what works best for their situation.
