This year all children in years 1 and 2 will be offered a flu vaccination as the national flu immunisation programme is extended. Your child will be offered a flu vaccine that is given as a simple spray up the nose. It is painless, quick and serious side effects are extremely uncommon.

Kings Caple children in years 1 and 2 will be offered the vaccine on 8th December. Nearer this time we will send parents with children in years 1 and 2 a letter and a leaflet explaining the programme together with a consent form. Consent forms must be returned for children to receive the vaccine. You may receive an automatic letter from your GP asking for your child to have the flu vaccine, however they do not need to have this vaccine from their GP if they are receiving it via the vaccination service in school.
