Flu Nasal Vaccination

Posted on: November 8th 2021

Dear Parents/Carers

 

The school nursing team will be visiting Corpus Christi catholic High School to offer children a nasal spray flu vaccine, Wednesday 24th November 2021. This year the programme has been extended and flu immunisation will be offered to all pupils from reception class to year 11 in secondary school, this is part of the wider planning for winter. It is more important than ever this year to help protect against flu, as flu and Covid-19 will be circulating at the same time.

 

The vaccine is recommended to help protect children and young people against influenza (flu). Flu can be very unpleasant and can sometimes cause serious complications. Immunising your child will also help to protect vulnerable family and friends, including the very young and elderly, as it will help prevent flu from spreading. The cut off for submission of the E- consent is 48 hours before vaccination day , any consents submitted after this time will be offered catch up clinic appointments.
