Immunisation programme for school aged children and young people.
It is important for us all to protect you in our community against a number of dangerous infectious diseases. The National Immunisation Programme means that diseases like polio have now disappeared in the UK and this is only possible by maintaining the high vaccination rates for children and young people across our local communities.This year the flu vaccination programme has been extended to include all secondary school children (Years 7-11).
We want to encourage everyone to complete the online consent form even if you want to decline the vaccine. For more details about this visit https://www.nottinghamshirehealthcare.nhs.uk/school-aged-immunisation-service

The flu vaccination is a quick and simple nose spray that works the same as a flu jab.
Having the flu spray will stop the spread.
Older people and those with illnesses are most at risk if they catch flu from young people.
Flu changes all the time, so even if you have had it last year it is vital you have it again this year.
