Childhood Seasonal Influenza Vaccination Programme

As Autumn arrives, we are starting the flu vaccination campaign in line with the NHS Childhood Seasonal Influenza Vaccination Programme. 

Childrens aged 2 and 3 on the 01/09/2021 and 4-year-olds and over who have chronic illnesses will be contacted by the practice to get the Flu jab in the next few weeks. If your child if 4 or over and not part of the eligible groups, the vaccine will be offered in school settings.

We are waiting for more updates from the government and the JCVI (Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation) on the following stages of this vaccination programme and we will update our website with the news.
