School Aged Immunisation Service
It is time for your child’s yearly flu vaccination!
Who is this for?
All school aged children will be invited to have the flu nasal spray at school.
This includes Reception - Year 6 and Year 7 - Year 11.
Why get your child vaccinated?
It is free and protects you child and family from potentially serious problems.
The vaccination is a quick and simple nose spray that works the same as a flu jab.
Giving your child the flu spray will stop the spread.
Older people and those with illnesses are most at risk if they catch flu from children.
Flu changes all the time, so even if your child had it last year it is vital they have it again this year.
