Vaccination UK - Flu Vaccine

Vaccination UK will soon be visiting school to offer the flu vaccine to all eligible children in year Reception to Year 9.

Dear Parent/Carer,

The nasal flu vaccine is painless, quick, and side effects are uncommon and generally mild. Please note this is not the Covid vaccination. This winter, there is a very high risk that the NHS could be overwhelmed with illness caused by influenza, which in addition to Covid continues to circulate in the community. Children who have the flu vaccine are less likely to pass the virus on to friends and family, especially those who may be at greater risk from flu, such as infants, elderly people or friends and relatives with a serious health condition.

Attached are some frequently asked questions (FAQs) about this vaccine.
