Flu Vaccine Information and Consent Form


Flu vaccine - information and consent form >


This year, all pupils from Reception to year 11 are being offered a flu vaccine at their school given as a simple squirt up the nose. It is painless, quick, and side effects are uncommon and generally mild. All pupils in special needs schools are eligible for the influenza immunisation. This is NOT the Covid Vaccination.

By having the flu vaccination, children are protected against the flu, which can be serious. Importantly, they are also less likely to pass the virus on to friends and family, especially those who may be at high risk from flu, such as babies, elderly people or friends and relatives with a serious health condition. It is predicted that we will see an increase in flu this year, due to previous lockdown measures and lack of natural protection. Vaccination is strongly advised to protect your child, your wider family and your community.

If you would prefer for your child to receive the flu injection, which does not contain porcine gelatine, please let your immunisation team know as soon as possible. The nasal spray offers the best protection from flu for children and young people, but there is an alternative flu vaccine available as an injection.

Please complete and sign the attached consent form* (one for each child) and return it to the school within 1 week.
*The person who has parental responsibility must sign the consent form.
