Flu clinic for children who missed school vaccination



Flu clinic for children who missed school vaccination

Children who missed their flu vaccinations at school can still receive the vaccine at a flu clinic being held in Corby next month.

Children who are home-schooled, or have been otherwise unable to attend their school vaccination, are invited to attend. The vaccination is in the form of a nasal spray, not an injection. 

GP Joanne Watt, chair of NHS Corby Clinical Commissioning Group, said: “This clinic is an opportunity for any children who are yet to be vaccinated. Flu is a very common infection in babies and children. It can be very unpleasant for them with potentially serious complications, including bronchitis and pneumonia. The flu vaccine is a quick and safe way of protecting your children in a matter of minutes.”

Flu is caused by influenza viruses that infect the windpipe and lungs. The flu vaccine provides the best protection available against a virus that can cause severe illness.

The clinic will take place from 9am to 12pm on Tuesday 12 December at the Willowbrook Health Centre, Cottingham Road, Corby, NN17 2UN.

To book to attend the clinic, please call 0300 111 1022.
