We have produced resources to help healthcare workers, vaccinators and school staff inform young people and their parents or carers about the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine.

Scottish Government have produced a video with Professor Linda Bauld about the COVID-19 vaccine and 12 to 15 year olds.

View the video about the COVID-19 vaccine and 12 to 15 year olds on YouTube (external website).
