Description

The resources listed below make up the Flu Education Pack. They are aimed at school staff supporting the National Flu Immunisation Programme during autumn and winter 2021 to 2022.

Flu vaccinations for education and pupil facing support staff

Teachers and pupil facing support staff are now eligible to get the free flu vaccine.

This includes those in a local authority or an independent setting who work at:

  • a nursery
  • a primary school
  • a secondary school

Book your flu vaccination appointment on NHS inform (external website).

What to expect during your flu vaccination video

We have produced a new animation video for 2021. It introduces flu and the concept of immunisation in an engaging way, and shows how the nasal spray vaccine is given.

The video is aimed at primary and secondary school pupils, parents and carers and teachers. It can be shown in classrooms and assemblies.

View the video about what to expect during your flu vaccination with music (external website).
