This vaccination programme is in place to help protect your child against flu. Flu can be an unpleasant illness and sometimes causes serious complications. Vaccinating your child will also help protect more vulnerable friends and family by preventing the spread of flu.
Please complete the online form (one for each child) as soon as possible. Please ensure you read and understand all the information before you complete the online form. Please visit https://www.hdft.nhs.uk/services/childhood-flu-programme/ for more information about the flu vaccination.
The vaccination is free and recommended for young children, and will be given by a quick and simple spray up the nose. Please go the website shown above which includes details about the small number of children for whom the nasal vaccine is not appropriate. Please ensure you read and understand the information before completing the online form. If you have any queries please contact the childhood Immunisation team on the above number.
Last year, most children offered the vaccine in schools had the immunisation. Please note the team will be in contact via email to confirm and to contact you in the autumn term to confirm school dates, and any further information regarding the vaccination.
