Flu Vaccinations

If your child is in Reception to Year 6 from September 2020, they are eligible for a Free Nasal Childhood Flu Vaccination.

 

This will be delivered in school on 15th October 2020, this will be administered adhering to all up to date Infection Control, PPE and social distancing guidance at the time.

 

Flu vaccination is one of most effective interventions we have to reduce pressure on the health and social care system which is going to be more important than ever this year.  For this reason, it is essential we deliver the vaccine to as many children as possible to prevent the spread of infection to those most at risk in society.

 

In light of the above we are expecting demand to be high and therefore we urge you to follow the below link to consent to your child’s vaccination now. You will also find answers to your FAQ’s on this link.

If you have any difficulties with completing the consent form please contact the Immunisation Team on our Single Point of Access (SPA).
