‘Fact-cination’ leaflet to help support rollout of COVID-19 vaccination programme amongst teens

LifeLab is about enabling young people to understand the health messages they receive through their own scientific discovery. The COVID-19 vaccination is now available to young people aged 12 to 15 and to help them make a decision that is right for them, the LifeLab team has produced this fact sheet.

The guide has been produced to help point young people and their parents to reliable sources of information regarding the COVID-19 vaccination now it is being offered to secondary school pupils. The guide is free to download and share with anyone who thinks it might be a useful resource to help make their decision.

The team has taken information from organisations like the NHS and scientific and medial authorities on vaccination programs. The leaflet also includes helpful hints on checking where information has come from to ensure the decision you make around having the vaccine is not based on false or misleading content.
