Flu Immunisations 2022

The School Nursing Team will be in school on 13/10/2022 (this is subject to change) to administer Flu Vaccinations. 

 The annual school aged Flu vaccination programme is, this year, being offered to all children in Reception – Year 6. Flu can be a very unpleasant illness for children and sometimes causes serious complications. Children can catch and spread flu easily so vaccinating them also protects others who are vulnerable e.g babies and older people. This is particularly important as COVID-19 is still circulating and people at risk of flu are also vulnerable to the complications of COVID-19.

For most children, the vaccination is painless and given by a quick and simple spray up the nose. In some circumstances it is necessary to administer the vaccine by intramuscular injection, but this is always discussed with parents/carers beforehand. You may also choose for the vaccination to be administered by Intramuscular injection if you object to the nasal vaccination due to it containing Porcine Gelatine. The intramuscular injection, if required, will also be delivered in school on the date above.

How do I provide Consent for my child to receive the vaccine?

It is important that you first read the information in the Primary age  Flu Leaflet Child flu vaccine - NHS which include details about the programme and the small number of children who may not be able to have the nasal spray.
