Nasal Flu Spray

Sent on the behalf of the Immunisation Team

Dear Parent/Carer,

The nasal flu spray is now available for young people in Year 7, 8, and 9. This vaccination is recommended to help protect your child against flu.

Flu can be an unpleasant illness and sometimes causes serious complications. Vaccinating your child will also help protect more vulnerable family and friends by preventing the spread of flu.

The vaccination is free and is a quick and simple spray up the nose. Even if your child had it last year, it is recommended to have the flu vaccine again this year.

The immunisation team will be coming into school to deliver on Tuesday 10th January 2023.

Please can you click and complete online consent form on link below, even if you don’t want your child to receive their flu spray, please still complete the online consent form, as this will avoid further communications from our service.

If after completing your child’s form, you attend the GP or wish to amend their form, you must contact the immunisation team directly and not your child’s school.

If you need any further assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact the team on 01744 624353.
