09 Nov Flu vaccination programme
The flu vaccine is offered free to all primary aged children through the NHS and our local nursing team will be visiting Christ the Saviour on Thursday 3rd December 2020 to offer the nasal spray flu vaccine to all pupils for whom we have received consent forms. Only children who have a signed and completed consent form will receive the vaccination.The consent forms have been sent home in your child’s school bag and should be returned to school on Tuesday, 10th November.
It is more important than ever to achieve a high level of flu vaccinations and we have attached information from Public Health England with further information about the importance of this vaccination programme. In view of the current Coronavirus pandemic we ask that you take time to read the letter & document from PHE prior to completing and signing the consent form. The vaccine will help protect your child against flu and serious complications such as bronchitis and pneumonia. Vaccinating your child will also help protect more vulnerable friends and family.
