Consent packs are out now for flu vaccination for pupils in P1-P7.

The flu nasal spray vaccine for primary school children helps to protect against flu. Flu is a virus; it spreads quickly and can infect children and adults very easily, causing an unpleasant illness which can be serious.

When you receive a consent form pack please complete and sign the consent form and return it to school as soon as possible.

More information about the programme can be found using the following link to the flu vaccination section on the Immunisation Scotland website.
