Oxfordshire parents urged to respond to flu consent letters

Oxford Health is urging parents and carers to consent for their children to be vaccinated as part of the annual national school-based Flu vaccination programme which is well underway.

Oxfordshire parents urged to respond to flu consent letters

The Trust has just completed giving around 40,000 jabs to children from Reception to Year 6 and from January 2023 work will begin to vaccinate those in Years 7, 8 and 9.

Anyone who gave consent but missed their jab in school will be invited to a community catch-up clinic.

Giving consent is essential as the vaccine won’t be given without it and all the information needed to do it is provided in the letter which will be emailed to parents and carers by the child’s school. Letters will be sent direct to families for children educated at home. For more information visit the School Aged Immunisation Website for details on how to book into a catch up clinic and the vaccination programme.
