Virgin Care Notice

Virgin care have asked us to share a notice with our PHSG community regarding details on how 12-15 year olds can access the first dose of the Covid 19 vaccination. 

Dear Parents/Guardians,  

How to access the first dose of Covid-19 vaccination for 12-15 year olds  

We are aware that for several reasons there are some children aged 12 and over who may not have received their first Covid-19 vaccination at school or at a local vaccination centre yet.  

We want to support as many children and young people and their families who wish to have their vaccination to be able to do so. 

These vaccines are still available and you can book an appointment through the National booking system 

Or by calling 119.  

There are appointments available for 12-15 year olds and all the centres run sessions for 12-15 year olds outside school hours for your convenience and to allow school attendance to continue uninterrupted. 


The vaccine centres available in Devon are: 


Greendale Vaccination Centre                           

Greendale Business Park 

Woodbury Salterton       


EX5 1EW 


Home Park 


PL2 3DQ 

North Devon Leisure Centre                             

Seven Brethren Bank                                                            



EX31 2AP 


Riviera International Centre (previously English Riviera Centre 

Chestnut Avenue 


TQ2 5LX 

A few key facts to remember when booking your appointment 

If your child has had a positive Covid test they should not receive the Covid-19 vaccination for 12 weeks (this advice changed on 18.11.2021).  

If your child is clinically vulnerable, they should have already been recommended to receive two vaccines with an eight-week gap.  This group of children are still recommended to only have a 28-day gap between a positive Covid test and receiving the vaccine.  

If your child has received the first dose, they now will be eligible for a second dose however, it is currently recommended that there is a minimum of 12 weeks after the first dose and you will be unable to book this until this time.  

Details of how the second doses of the Healthy Covid 12-15 programme will be provided in the coming weeks.
