10/09/2018   Flu vaccination Information

 

Please find the following information below sent from Lincolnshire Community Health Services.

 

Dear Parent/Guardian,

Your child’s annual flu vaccination is now due

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.

From October this year we will no longer be using paper consent forms.

Please click on the following link to complete the online consent form for your child(ren): https://www.lincolnshireimmunisations.co.uk/

You will need to enter the following code to ensure the completed form can be correctly allocated to your child’s school: EE120546   

The date allocated to your school is Wednesday 14th November 2018.  

The vaccination is free and is a quick and simple spray up the nose.  This vaccine is a yearly vaccine.

For further information please follow this link to the School Aged Immunisation Service Flu page https://www.lincolnshirecommunityhealthservices.nhs.uk/our-services/childrens-services/immunisations/seasonal-flu-vaccination-programme

If you have any queries please contact the healthcare team on 01775 652144.

Yours sincerely,

Maria Turner
