SENT ON BEHALF of Maria Turner, Clinical lead, School Flu programme
You will have recently received a letter from the NHS recommending you give consent for your child/ren to have a flu immunisation in this year’s programme.
This letter has been sent out nationally to all families with children eligible for a flu immunisation this year.
The NHS nationally are not aware whether a consent has already been completed by you – receiving a letter does not mean that you need to complete the form again.
If you have not yet consented and wish to do so please contact us on or visit our webpage https://www.lincolnshirecommunityhealthservices.nhs.uk/flu-consent
You are asked to present this letter with your child/ren at the time of their immunisation in school as it is barcoded and needs to be scanned – this is not necessary as we use online consent forms which contain all the information we require.
Apologises for any confusion this may have caused you.
