People from Wirral who are going on holiday this summer are asked to make sure their child has a first or second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
All children aged five and over are being offered two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine to boost their immunity. It's safe, easy and gives them the best protection against the virus.
The second dose is offered three months after the first dose and gives children maximum protection against the more serious effects of COVID-19.
If your child has already had COVID-19 they can still be re-infected, and while having had the virus may offer some immunity, the vaccine offers guaranteed and longer-lasting antibodies.
The COVID-19 vaccine is being given in a wide range of vaccine services, including GP practices, hospital hubs and pharmacies, across Wirral.
Parents and guardians can book appointments online or call 119.
