2020/21 Flu programme

Dear Parent/Guardian,

Your child’s annual flu vaccination is now due

This vaccination programme is in place 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 friends and family by preventing the spread of flu.

We are due to visit your child’s school on Tuesday 1st December 2020. Click on the following link to access the online consent form:

https://www.southernhealthimmunisations.co.uk/forms/flu

The unique code for your child’s school is SH116228. Submit your form by Thursday 26th November to ensure your child receives their vaccination. If you experience any problems accessing the form, telephone 01252 335142 and the team will be happy to help.

The vaccination is free and recommended for young children every year, and will be given by a quick and simple spray up the nose.

For further information about the vaccination programme and details about the small number of children for whom the nasal vaccine is not appropriate see: www.nhs.uk/child-flu;

Last year, within Hampshire around 75-80% of school aged children in Reception to Year 6 received the nasal flu vaccination.

If your child has asthma and becomes wheezy, or has their asthma medication increased after you return this form, or you have any other questions, please contact your local Immunisation Team on the above number.

Yours faithfully,
School-age Immunisation Team
