Immunising primary school children against flu

This leaflet for head teachers and school staff answers a number of questions you may have about the nasal spray flu vaccine being offered to children in the autumn term of 2018

 

During the 2018/19 the flu vaccination will be offered in primary schools to all children in reception class through to Year 5. Preschool children aged two and three years old will be offered the vaccine through their GP surgery.

The extension of the national flu immunisation programme to children is based on the advice from an independent expert committee, the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI), which advises the Government on vaccination policies.
