Parents urged to return child flu consent forms

Parents on Arran are being urged to return their children’s flu vaccination consent form as soon as possible to ensure they are protected against flu this winter.

This year’s childhood flu vaccination programme will see more than 2,000 schools across Scotland offer the free nasal vaccine to more than 450,000 primary school pupils.

Health professionals are reminding parents of the benefits of the free nasal vaccine as figures reveal over a quarter, (27 per cent) of the children eligible didn’t receive the vaccine last year. As no child will receive the vaccination without consent, the importance of returning a completed form, which has been sent home in school Arran young people are leading from the front bags, has been highlighted in a bid to ensure more children in Scotland are protected.
