A Covid travel pass will be given to 12-15 year olds to facilitate international travel | Travel News | To travel
An NHS Covid travel pass will also be made available to fully vaccinated 12-15 year olds. It comes after parents complained of holiday breaks in countries like Spain, Germany and Malta as they demand proof that anyone over 12 has received both vaccines to enter. Since the NHS Covid pass app is only available to people aged 16 and over, the government is said to be considering creating Covid travel passes for 12-15 year olds.
But officials from the Ministry of Health are said to still be working on the project.
Currently, it can be difficult for families to travel to Italy, Austria, France and Canada as they need a vaccine pass to enter public spaces – this includes often places of reception, such as ski lifts.
It comes as Stephen Smith, the parent of a 12-year-old who had the first dose of the Pfizer jab, spoke about the possible letter.
He said: “This is great news that is long overdue, although it looks like it won’t be a digital solution initially.
When it comes to the side effects that some children may experience from the Covid vaccine, the NHS lists common side effects as:
Most side effects are mild and should only last for a day or two, such as:
• a sore arm from the injection
• Feeling tired
• a headache
• feel sore
• flu-like symptoms, including chills (chills)
Children need to rest and you can give them paracetamol to help them feel better.
