As you are aware from October 2015 all children of school Years 1 and 2 age will be offered flu vaccination through a nasal spray. It is painless, very quick, and serious side effects are uncommon.
By having the flu vaccination children will be protected against flu which can be an unpleasant illness and, although rarely, sometimes causes serious complications. But children will also be less likely to pass the virus on to friends and family. This will help to protect those who are at greater risk from flu including infants, older people and those with an underlying health condition.
Children in our school are therefore invited to attend for a free flu vaccination at Boots Pharmacy.
Parents need to phone us to arrange a convenient time on one of these days.
