8 weeks is a good interval for 5-11y old's second vaccine dose

We recommend that children have two doses of the vaccine 8 weeks apart because it offers:

1. Protection from the first dose

2. Better protection with a longer gap

3. Reduced side effects

More information can be found in the 8 week interval for 5 to 11y old vaccination resource.
