Re. Childhood Flu Immunisation - Academic Year 2019/20
The 2019/20 Flu Immunisation Programme is being led by North Somerset Community Partnership working with Bristol Community Health and Sirona Care and Health.
This year the nasal flu spray will be offered to children in Reception Year and Years 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6.
Parents/carers will be asked to complete the consent form and return it to us in the original envelope. The consent form must be completed by someone who has parental responsibility for the child. This means that legally they have the power to make important decisions in relation to the child. One form must be completed for each child receiving the vaccination.
Once you have received your pack in September, please can we ask you to return the form(s) to school as soon as possible.
Once you have returned the form, if you wish to change your mind you should contact us as soon as possible on 01275 373104. Any change should be notified to us at least 2 working days before the planned immunisation date at the school.
If your child currently has a health problem which prevents them attending school, we can arrange for them to get immunised at an evening clinic. Please contact the team directly on firstname.lastname@example.org or 01275 373104
