Dear Parents/Carers

For the school year starting September 2021 we will be continuing with the e-consent for the Flu Programme. This year we will be offering the Nasal Flu vaccination to children in Years; 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11.

When completing the e-consent please state the year group your child will be in at the beginning of the school year September 2021. Please visit https://www.derbyshireandcityimms.co.uk/Forms/Flu to complete the consent form.

If you wish to decline the Flu spray due to the porcine element we may now be able to offer an alternative injectable Flu vaccine that does not contain porcine. Please complete the consent form as a decline (due to porcine) and we will then contact you to arrange vaccination. For more information, please contact the team as below.

I will write to you again to confirm the specific dates that the vaccinations will take place in school, but in the meantime, please complete the consent form outlined above. The option to consent or decline the vaccination is at the end of the questionnaire so please complete even if you do not want your child to have the vaccination.

Your unique school code for St Mary’s Catholic High School, A Catholic Voluntary Academy is DD138470
