Flu Vaccination Programme

2nd Oct 2023

Dear Parents

The flu vaccination programme has been introduced to give protection to children against flu, which can be a very unpleasant illness and can mean that they have to take time off school. It will also help to stop the spread of flu in the community and will protect people around them as well. The vaccine is usually given to children by a simple spray into their nose and they can return to their lessons very quickly afterwards. Please read the leaflet provided which provides more detail on the flu vaccination programme. Please contact the HSC school health team if you have any further questions on 028 38340295.

A short video aimed at children explaining the flu vaccination programme has been developed by the Public Health Agency and can be found on the following link:
