Schools Flu Program

Flu Vaccination for Children in Years 3, 4, 5 & 6

From October 2016 all children in years 1, 2 and 3 will be offered the Influenza nasal spray vaccination in school. Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust will administer the vaccination in Brighton & Hove and West Sussex.

Your child will be offered a flu vaccine that is given as a simple spray up the nose. It is painless, very quick, and serious side effects are uncommon. This vaccination programme is designed to protect your child against flu which can be an unpleasant illness and, although rarely, could cause serious complications. By having the flu vaccination, children are also less likely to pass the virus on to friends and family. This will help to protect those who are at greater risk from flu including infants, older people and those with an underlying health condition.
