NHS Nasal Flu Immunisation
Your child is due to receive the Flu vaccination on Thursday 5th December.
We are writing to inform you that the Immunisation Team will be moving to e-consenting for our school based immunisation programme from the start of the 2019/2020 academic year.
Using e-consent is quicker and easier for you and can be completed on any platform i.e. mobile phone, tablet or computer. However in the event that this is not possible, please contact the immunisation team.
Your child is due to receive the Flu vaccination on THURSDAY 05/12/19. You can find out further information about this vaccine in this leaflet and at the following links:
Please complete the e-consent form for your child’s flu vaccination at: www.surreyimmunisations.co.uk (your school’s unique code/URN number is SR125294 which you will need to enter on to the flu consent form)
Please complete the e-consent form by THURSDAY 28/11/19
Please ensure that you complete and submit your child’s consent form promptly, whether you wish your child to be immunised or not. Parents who have not submitted their consent form by the deadline and wish their child to be immunised will need to call the immunisation team to book an appointment at a community catch up clinic.
If you have any concerns or would like to discuss this further, please do not hesitate to contact a member of the Immunisation Team on the above number.
