School Flu Vaccinations 2021

It’s that time of year again when the NHS Immunisation Service offers nasal spray vaccinations for children in school.

The Immunisation Service are coming into school on 13/10/2021 to offer your child the Flu vaccination.

Please see below a parent letter with instructions on how to complete the online consent form, to either consent or refuse this course of vaccinations.***

***Please note there is a cut off time and date for consent completion, which can be found in the letter. This also contains important information on the vaccines and frequently asked questions, to help you and your child reach an informed decision regarding consent.

The online consent form is available for completion until 11am five working days before the session date above. If you have any difficulties completing this online form, please contact your local Immunisation team before the cut-off date, using the telephone number provided in the letter. 

If you miss the cut off time to complete the consent form, the Immunisation team will be unable to vaccinate your child in school on the day of the vaccination session. The consent form will reopen one working day after the session, enabling you to submit a form for your child to be offered the vaccination at a later date, within one of our catch up clinics.

If your child is in Reception to Year 6 please read the following publication with your child:
