GOV.UK update – Flu vaccination in schools
19 Jun
Between October and December all children of primary school age across Essex will be offered their annual flu vaccination. Children attending any Southend primary school will be offered the vaccine at school and clinics. Additional sessions are held in children centres and health clinics across the borough to enable home schools children or child who miss the vaccine in school the opportunity to receive it. The childhood flu vaccination programme has been consistently shown to reduce hospital admission and GP attendance for school aged children thereby supporting positive health outcomes and school attendance. The success of the programme in Southend is attributable to effective partnership working between schools and the health provider; without the school’s dedication and support for the programme the high immunisation rate achieved wouldn’t be possible. If you require any further information, please contact the EPUT immunisation team on 01702 220181. Please see the attached information for Headteachers and school staff.
