Annual Flu Vaccination information
Your child’s annual flu vaccination will be offered in school on Wednesday 22nd September.
This vaccination is recommended 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 family and friends by preventing the spread of flu.
The vaccination is free and is a quick and simple spray up the nose. Even if your child had the vaccine last year, it is recommended that they have the flu vaccine again this year.
While COVID-19 is in circulation, the Healthcare team and school will follow guidelines to ensure children are safe when being offered the vaccine.
