The annual flu vaccination will be offered at Downderry on Wednesday 10th November. We are now inviting parents/guardians to register your consent for the flu vaccination via a secure on-line link that you can use to register consent for your child to be vaccinated at school. The process is quick and easy to use.

Flu can be an unpleasant illness and can cause serious complications. Vaccinating your child will help to protect them from getting the flu, and prevent it spreading among more vulnerable family and friends. With COVID-19 in circulation it is more important than ever to reduce the number of people becoming ill with flu this winter to help protect them and the NHS.
The vaccination is free and in most cases is a quick and simple spray up the nose offered to children from Reception up to Year 11. Even if your child had it last year, the type of flu can vary each winter, so it is recommended to have the flu vaccine again this year or they won’t be protected. The healthcare team and school will follow guidelines to ensure your child is safe from COVID-19 while getting the vaccine.
