There continues to be delays to the supply of the nasal flu vaccination both to General Practices and the schools programme. Please go here for further information.
As a surgery we have been advised by Public Health England to prioritise children in high risk groups from age 2 to less than 18 years. In the first instance we will offer the nasal vaccination but if there becomes a point when this becomes unavailable we advise as per PHE that the vaccination of children in high risk groups should not be delayed and we will offer an alternative which will be in injection form.
Children of primary school age NOT in an at-risk group will be asked to wait for it to be offered at school.
