Did your child miss their flu vaccine at school?

If your child is aged 5 - 11 and missed their flu vaccine at school then there is a solution.
did your child miss their flu vaccine

Evening and weekend clinics are being arranged to ensure all primary and year 7 children can get their flu vaccine this year.

So if your child, or a child that you know, missed the vaccine for whatever reason, there should be a clinic near to you.

You can find out the dates of these catch-up clinics and more information about the flu vaccination programme here. Please share this information with your family and friends.

If you have a question, please email kchft.cyp-immunisationteam@nhs.net or phone 0300 123 5205.

Children aged 2 to 4, will be given the vaccination at their GP surgery, but school aged children will be offered the vaccination in school, and home-schooled children will also be offered the vaccine if they are of the appropriate age.

The nasal spray is quick and easy to administer; it’s one spritz up each nostril and is completely needle free. This version of the vaccine works even better than the injected flu vaccine, according to the NHS. The spray is absorbed very quickly and will still work if your child develops a runny nose, sneezes or blows their nose.
