Coronavirus remains a serious health risk. You should stay cautious to help protect yourself and others.
COVID-19 will be a feature of our lives for the foreseeable future, so we need to learn to live with it and manage the risk to ourselves and others.
It is still possible to catch and spread COVID-19, even if you are fully vaccinated.
Vaccinations for 12 to 17 year olds
For those aged 16 to 17 who have had coronavirus (COVID-19) infection, the second vaccine dose should be given 12 weeks or more following the first vaccine dose, or 12 weeks following a positive COVID-19 test result – whichever is later.
To be consistent with this advice, the clinical guidance was updated by the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) last week to recommend that young people aged 12 to 17 who are not in a high risk group should wait 12 weeks after a positive test showing COVID-19 infection before getting their first (or second if aged 16 to 17) vaccine dose.
