Flu Vaccination Programme- Autumn 2020

Flu Nasal Spray Vaccination Programme for Primary School children, Autumn term 2020

With the cooperation and support from schools, 70% of primary school children in Lothian were immunised in 2019 – the highest vaccination uptake rate yet.
Flu vaccination is more important than ever in the context of COVID-19 to decrease
