PIC: File

Children aged 12 to 15 are now eligible to be vaccinated against COVID-19 from today.

Parents and guardians can register their children as a dependant under their account and book them an appointment at a State-run vaccination clinic through the Roll Up for WA website.

Teenagers can also be vaccinated at registered GP's and respiratory clinics.

Children aged 12 to 15 years old with specific medical conditions, who are Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and/or who live in remote communities, are already eligible for the Pfizer vaccination. 

"I'm sure many parents of children in this age group are very keen to get their kids vaccinated against COVID-19 as soon as they can," Health Minister Roger Cook said.

The State Government is also planning on giving year 11 and 12 students priority access to the Pfizer vaccine ahead of their end of year exams.

Under the plan, students will be given allocated walk-in vaccination slots meaning they won't have to book an appointment.
