Dear parent or guardian,
The school nursing team will be visiting Romilly primary School to offer children a nasal spray flu vaccine on Thursday 30th September 2021 for Key Stage 2 children (Year 3 to Year 6 classes) & Tuesday 7th December 2021 for Foundation Phase children (Reception to Year 2 classes).
This year the programme has been extended and flu immunisation will be offered to all pupils from reception class to year 11 in secondary school, this is part of the wider planning for winter. It is more important than ever this year to help protect against flu, as flu and Covid-19 will be circulating at the same time.
The vaccine is recommended to help protect children and young people against influenza (flu). Flu can be very unpleasant and can sometimes cause serious complications. Immunising your child will also help to protect vulnerable family and friends, including the very young and elderly, as it will help prevent flu from spreading.
