A small number of children and young people with underlying chronic conditions are at increased risk of serious COVID-19 disease.  The JCVI advises that children aged 12 years and over with specific underlying health conditions that put them at risk of serious COVID-19, should be offered the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccination.  

The underlying health conditions are:
