National Routine Flu Vaccination Programme 2022
This Vaccination programme is in place to help protect your child against Flu. Flu can be an unpleasant illness and sometimes causes serious complications. Vaccinating your child will also help protect more vulnerable friends and family by preventing the spread.
The Fluenz Tetra Vaccine (live attenuated Nasal Spray) is currently the most effective Vaccine for children and is our first choice for protecting children against the circulating Flu strains. The Fluenz Tetra does contain products derived from pigs (porcine gelatine), which is used as a stabiliser within this Vaccine. If this is something you do not wish for your child to have, we are able to offer your child an alternative Flu Injectable Vaccine that does NOT contain any porcine gelatine.
We do not give the alternative Injectable Vaccine in school sessions to primary aged children. To have the Flu injection for Children in Reception to Year 6 you must contact us to arrange a Clinic Appointment.

All initial school Vaccination Sessions will be planned to be completed before the Christmas holidays. If your child was absent on the day of the Session you can bring them to a catch-up Clinic, these are appointment only so please contact the team for an appointment. However, we would advise that if your child is in a High-Risk category, they can attend their GP for Vaccination if they missed the Vaccine in school or if the school session is in either November or December.
If your child becomes wheezy, has their asthma medication increased or is given the Vaccine elsewhere after you submit the consent form, please contact the Vaccination Team on 01274 221269 and let us know.
PLEASE NOTE: As we are unable to give assurances that messages given to school staff will always be forwarded to the team prior to your child’s Vaccination, we strongly advise that you inform us directly of any changes that you feel may affect your child having their Vaccination on the day. Please ensure that you contact us the day before the session by telephoning 01274 221269. If you do not let the team know directly, there is a possibility that your Child will be Vaccinated.
