Flu Immunisation 2018

The Vaccination Nurses will be in Tornedale on the morning of Tuesday 23 October.  We will be distributing the consent forms on 8 October.  Can you please ensure you complete and return the forms before 19 October even if you do not wish your child to be immunised.

Five Reasons to vaccinate your child:

1.    Protect your child: the vaccine will help protect your child against flu and serious complications such as bronchitis or pneumonia.
2.    Protect you, your family and friends: vaccinating your child will help protect more vulnerable family and friends.
3.    No injection needed: the nasal spray is painless and easy to have
4.    It's safer than flu:  the nasal spray helps protect against flu, has been given to millions of children worldwide and has an excellent safety record.
5.    Avoid costs: if your child gets flu, you may have to take time off work or arrange alternative childcare.
