Eligible groups

The vaccine is offered to all young people who are in S3 (around 14 years old) at school.  

Young people in S4 to S6 in secondary school who missed the opportunity to be immunised during S3 may also be offered the vaccine at school. 

Young people who are home-educated or are not in mainstream education are eligible to be vaccinated. Vaccinations can be arranged by contacting the local NHS immunisation teams.
