As well as all primary school aged children being offered the Flu vaccine, this coming season the Government is extending the programme to year 7 children in Secondary Schools. This is due to the likelihood that flu and COVID-19 will both be circulating at the same time. The flu vaccination won’t protect against COVID-19 but it is important to protect the general health of the population during this time.
All children whose parents have agreed for them to have the vaccine, which is given by way of a nasal spray, also benefit from the protection it provides to them as individuals.
The Nursing Team have confirmed they will be holding a vaccination session on Tuesday 6th October during the school day. If you require any further information regarding the vaccine, please contact us via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
