Help keep your child well this winter – make sure they have their flu vaccine.
Dear parent or guardian,
It’s very important to protect your child from flu to make sure they stay as healthy as possible, as both COVID-19 and flu are likely to circulate this winter. The best flu vaccine for most children is a nasal spray.
We have included flu vaccination information and a consent form with this letter.To help make sure the vaccine is suitable for your child, and they don’t miss out, please take time to read the information.
If you want more information about flu vaccination for children, please contact the immunisation team, or visitphw.nhs.wales/fluvaccine or click on the PDF attachments.
Please keep this letter, as it contains the date of the vaccination session and contact details.
After you have returned the consent form, please contact the immunisation team on 03000 858599 before the vaccination session if:
·there are any changes to your child’s health, or
·their asthma medication is increased, or
·they are prescribed oral steroids, or
·they become wheezy.
Note: There are a very small number of children who should not have the nasal flu vaccine. Please see the information sheet for more detail, or look at phw.nhs.wales/fluvaccine.
