Children will be having Influenza vaccinations in school on Wednesday 2nd December. You will receive a letter asking you to give permission for this beforehand and we are trying to have it moved forward. We are told that children are unlikely to be very ill with Covid19 or to pass it on. This may well be the case for the new virus but it is certainly not so for Influenza, and anyone unfortunate enough to get Covid19 and Flu at the same time is likely to be very ill indeed. The children's vaccine is given by a simple nose spray. It is not unpleasant, it is safe, and it is much more effective than the injections given to adults. Please sign up to having this and protect your child, your family and the whole community.
