From October 2017 all children in Reception and years 1, 2, 3 and 4 will be offered flu vaccination
through a nasal spray. A leaflet explaining the programme is attached. Any further information can be obtained from
www.nhs.uk/child-flu or contact your Immunisation Team.

Please complete the consent form and return it to the school.
Please remember to return the consent form even if you DO NOT consent to the vaccination for your child, explaining the reason for your decision.

Some faith groups accept the use of porcine gelatine in medical products – the decision is, of course, up to you.
For further information about porcine gelatine and the nasal flu vaccine, see:
