Flu Vaccinations

If your child is currently in Foundation to year 5 or you have a child due to start in September; please read the information below regarding the flu vaccinations:

 

Children in Reception to Year 6 from September 2020 are eligible for a Free Nasal Childhood Flu Vaccination.

Vaccinations have been booked to take place on Friday 13th November at school and will be administered adhering to all up to date Infection Control, PPE and social distancing guidance at the time.

Flu vaccination is one of the 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, the Immunisations Team are expecting demand to be high and therefore urge you to follow the below link to consent to your child’s vaccination now.

IMPORTANT: Even if you do not want your child to receive this vaccination, please complete the consent form stating “no” consent.  You will also find answers to your FAQ’s on this link.
