Majority of children no longer need to shield

09/07/2020

The majority of children currently considered extremely clinical vulnerable to COVID-19 will be able to be removed from the shielded patient list.

Independent evidence from the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH), working with specialists in paediatric medicine, shows the risk of serious illness for children and young people is low and only those with the most severe conditions should now be considered clinically extremely vulnerable.
