NHS Devon’s Chief Nurse Darryn Allcorn said: “Covid-19 rates are currently highest among people of school age in Devon. Many are passing the virus on to their parents and other family members.
"We strongly recommend young people take up the opportunity to have the Covid-19 vaccination whether in school or at one of our local vaccination centres."
Parents and guardians are advised to come with their children to appointments outside of school hours as consent will be sought.
