The School Aged Immunisation Service visited your school recently to offer the nasal flu vaccination. If your child is in Reception to Year 7 and missed this opportunity to be vaccinated and you would like your child to receive the vaccine please contact us to book an appointment at one of our community catch up clinics.
If your child is in a clinical risk group or shielded group you can also access the vaccine via your GP surgery.
To book an appointment please contact our 0-19 Admin hub on 0800 170 7055 (option 4).
Please visit https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/vaccinations/flu-influenza-vaccine/ for further advice about the vaccination programme and details about the small number of children for whom the nasal vaccine is not appropriate
The School Aged Immunisation Team will be visiting your child’s school on Monday 12th October 2020.
Please find the attached letter regarding the flu programme including the link to give consent for your child. The live consent form will close 7 days before the planned immunisation session so it is important that you complete and submit your form ASAP if you wish for your child to receive the flu vaccination in school.
Also attached is a leaflet explaining in detail the flu vaccination that will be offered to your child.
