Flu Vaccinations Information

Flu Vaccination date change - Vaccinations will now take place on
Monday 2nd November 

Flu Vaccination Autumn 2020

Dear Parents/Guardians,

If  your child is due to be in Reception to Year 6 from September 2020 they will therefore be eligible for a Free Nasal Childhood Flu Vaccination.

Our vaccination programme will take place in school on Monday 2nd November (changed from Tuesday 3rd November), this will be administered adhering to all up to date Infection Control, PPE and social distancing guidance at the time.

Flu vaccination is one of most effective interventions we have to reduce pressure on the health and social care system which is going to be more important than ever this year.  For this reason, it is essential we deliver the vaccine to as many children as possible to prevent the spread of infection to those most at risk in society.

In light of the above we are expecting demand to be high and therefore we urge you to follow the below link to consent to your child’s vaccination now. You will also find answers to your FAQ’s on this link.

We have been asked to sent the following information out to parents (08.09.2020)

“Dear parents, 
As you are aware the plan this year is for the biggest flu campaign ever delivered. If you haven’t already, please do follow the link previously shared to complete consent for your child to receive this vaccine at their school session.  Clearly we are unable to offer all children vaccines in the early part of the season and will have schools booked up to mid-December.  Alongside this we will offer community clinics throughout the season for if you child misses their vaccine at school.  Some children are more at risk from Flu and for these medically vulnerable children we would like to offer early clinics to ensure they are protected at the earliest opportunity.  If you believe your child fits into this category please contact our Single Point of Access (SPA) on 0300 247 0082 to book into a clinic that is convenient to you. 
Kind regards
Immunisation Team”

If you feel your child is medically vulnerable and would benefit from an earlier vaccination please call the number above.


 
 

If you have completed your consent form and changed your mind please read. 

“Dear Parent/Carer,  

Thank you to all of those who have completed a consent form for your child with regards to the Flu vaccine. If for any reason you need to change any information or consent please do not complete a second form alternatively please contact the team on 0300 247 0082 (09.00 – 16.00) or via. VCL.Immunisations@nhs.net, where we can manually change any information and avoid any duplicates and errors. This is particularly important if you wish to decline the consent having already given a positive consent in which case we ask that you also inform your child’s school that you have declined consent in order that they can inform the team when they attend.   

Thank you for your cooperation with this important matter.  

Immunisation Team.”
