Nasal Flu Vaccination Consent Form
The annual flu vaccination programme will run between September and December. The Immunisation Team will be visiting your child’s school to administer the nasal flu vaccine. You will be notified of the session date by your school in due course.
Flu can be an unpleasant illness and sometimes causes serious complications. This annual vaccination programme is in place to help protect your child against the flu. Vaccinating healthy children also helps to protect those more vulnerable by reducing the spread and transmission of flu. The presence of COVID-19 this winter season increases the importance of flu vaccine uptake for those who are vulnerable or who have regular contact with the vulnerable population.
The vaccine is recommended by Public Health England and forms part of the routine immunisation schedule for all children from Reception to school Year 11. It is given via a quick and simple spray up the nose. Please visit the following link for more information regarding the vaccine:
