Flu Vaccination Information
As part of the NHS National Immunisation schedule, we are offering nasal flu vaccine in both primary and secondary schools. This will be delivered in schools during the winter months.
There is an injectable (IM) vaccine that does not contain porcine gelatin. This can be offered if you decline the nasal Flu vaccine on grounds of objection to porcine gelatin.
Included with this consent form is the NHS leaflet for you to read if you wish to know more about the vaccination, please go to www.intrahealth.co.uk/fluleaflet2021.
IF YOU WANT YOUR CHILD TO RECEIVE THE IM VACCINATION ENSURE YOU COMPLETE A NO FORM AND TICK YOU WOULD WANT IM DUE TO INGREDIENTS - A MEMBER OF OUR TEAM WILL THEN CONTACT YOU TO COMPLETE A SEPARATE IM CONSENT FORM.
Otherwise, please read and complete either the YES or NO form (one per child). If after returning the consent form your child’s health changes or your child moves school, please contact our Immunisation team on the telephone number below.
If your child is in years 8 to 11, they may be assessed by a nurse, and if deemed competent may self-consent to the flu vaccine.
This vaccination is not routinely given in your GP practice unless your child has a pre-existing long term health condition. All children are eligible for the vaccine in School.
