What to expect during your flu vaccination videos

We have produced new animation videos for 2022. These prepare primary and secondary school pupils for what to expect during their flu vaccination.

The video introduces flu and the concept of immunisation in a relevant and engaging way.

It shows how the nasal (nose) spray vaccine is given.

The video is aimed at:

  • primary and secondary school pupils
  • parents and carers
  • teachers and school support staff

It can be shown in classrooms and assemblies.
