Covid/flu vaccinations in secondary schools.

Alan Brown made this Freedom of Information request to Public Health Scotland

Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

The request was successful.

Dear Public Health Scotland,

The Scottish Government states that: "In accordance with JCVI guidance the Scottish Government have no plans at present to vaccinate citizens under 16 years old; therefore parental consent is not required."

Please advise if the Scottish Government will contact the parents of school pupils, 16 years and under, before carrying out Covid vaccinations at any point in the future. Will non-consensual vaccination programmes be undertaken in secondary schools in Scotland?

Yours faithfully

Alan Brown
