Primary School Flu Vaccination

Consent packs are now out for flu vaccination for pupils in P1 – P7 (taking place in school at JMC & Lochend on Wednesday 23rd October 2019).

The flu nasal spray vaccine for primary school children helps to protect against flu.  Flu is a virus; it spreads quickly and can infect children and adults very easily, causing an unpleasant illness which can be serious.

When you receive a consent pack, please complete and sign the consent form and return it to school asap.

More information about the programme can be found on: www.nhsinform.scot/childflu

Or you can call NHS Inform on 0800224488 for more information (8am to 10pm Monday – Friday and 9am – 5pm Saturday & Sunday).
