Young people are experiencing the pandemic in so many ways, from mental health to education, from health services to vaccines... In 2020 and 2021, young people aged 16-25 formed the COVID-19 Book Club to review the evidence, and give their insights.
The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation and Chief Medical Officers advised on how the COVID vaccination programme may be applied to children and young people. In our regularly updated FAQs, we summarise the advice and link to information for young people, families and health professionals.
Our recommendations on the management of children with bronchiolitis in hospital settings during COVID-19 are for clinicians to support planning in partnership with local infection prevention control teams.

Browse or search all our resources on COVID-19. These include guidance for paediatric services, staffing and rotas, advice for education and training, our research summaries and surveillance work. Plus insight from children and young people through our RCPCH &Us network and resources for families.

The NHS is still providing safe care - advice for families

It can be confusing to know what to do when you or your child is unwell, or experience mental health issues, during coronavirus.

Our posters for families in England explain when and how to get medical help for your child, or for your young baby - or for yourself as a young person. We’re currently updating our posters for Scotland, Wales (in English and Welsh languages) and Northern Ireland and will make them available again as soon as possible.
