Kingussie High School has confirmed that all of its pupils aged 12-15 years old are being offered the Covid-19 Vaccination.

A clinic will be held at the strath's largest secondary school on Friday 19th November.

The sessions will be held during the school day for all pupils that would like to receive the vaccine.

Consent to receive the vaccine can be provided independently by each pupil.

The school is asking parents to take the opportunity to discuss this matter with their child and decide whether or not they would like to receive the vaccine.

A school spokesperson said: "Pupils aged 12-15 years old will receive their consent forms in school this Monday during tutor time.

"Pupils should bring their completed consent forms on the day of the vaccine to hand to the nurses.

"If pupils have completed the consent forms they will be withdrawn from class at set times.

"Those pupils that have not given consent will continue in class as normal."

The school has asked what the process is for school pupils aged between 16-18 years old who want to be vaccinated.

The spokesperson said: "The information we have been given is that they are entitled to be vaccinated on 19th November with verbal consent."
