Nurses at Oxford Health are on a mission to vaccinate 56,000 primary school children in Oxfordshire to protect them from the flu.

It’s the aim to vaccinate every youngster from reception up to and including Year 6 in 270 schools  via a nasal spray, all delivered by the Trust’s Immunisation Team in conjunction with the school nursing service.

So far, more than 37,000 youngsters have been immunised.

If your child is in Reception to  Year 6 – and has missed their flu vaccination in school please email flu.schoolnurses@oxfordhealth.nhs.uk and the team will contact you to arrange an appointment in one of our clinics below, which are being held later this month.

  • January 28: Banbury  9am to 11.45am

The flu nasal vaccine contains a pork-based element which may impact on some faith groups.
