Providing Consent

For children and young people under the age of 16, parents, or adults with Parental Responsibility granted through court, must give consent for vaccination via our online system. Parents/carers will receive the information from school, usually via the school’s email or text system, which will include instructions for giving or declining consent online, as well as a closing date.

Very occasionally a young person under the age of 16 may request a vaccination without parental consent.  In these circumstances a qualified clinician would make a thorough assessment of the young person’s understanding, knowledge and competence to make such a decision.  If the decision is made that they have the right level of knowledge and understanding, and they cannot be persuaded to discuss it with their parents, the clinician may go ahead and vaccinate the young person, known as Gillick Competency.
