National Childhood Flu Vaccination ProgrammeVaccinating children each year means that not only are they protected but there should be reduced transmission across all age groups, lessening levels of flu overall and reducing the burden of flu across the population.
How does it benefit your school?
- Helps protect children against flu which in turn may help protect other pupils and staff and reduce absenteeism rates
- Promotes a healthy working environment in schools and the wider community, including amongst parents
- The engagement in public health programmes, including vaccination, is recognised by OFSTED as being important and will help with requirement for schools to evidence they are meeting criteria pertaining to personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE)
- Provides an opportunity to integrate learning about the benefits of vaccination into the school curriculum including history and science
