Flu vaccinations - consent form

The School Immunisation Team will be at school in November to offer free flu vaccinations for all students in Year 7 to 11. Please follow the link below to complete an online consent form (one for each child) to ensure your child receives their vaccination.

https://sav.hrch.nhs.uk/flu/2021/southwark

The vaccination is free and is a quick, simple and painless spray up the nose. Even if your child had the vaccine last year, the type of flu can vary each winter, so it is recommended to have it again this year or they won’t be protected.


Covid vaccinations - 16-18 year olds

People aged 18 and over (or will turn 18 within 3 months)

  • Can book online or call 119 for an appointment at a vaccination centre or pharmacy
  • Can find a walk-in clinic to get vaccinated without needing an appointment
  • Can follow up with their GP surgery and book an appointment with them

Young people aged 16 and 17

The first dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is now available to all 16 and 17 year olds nationwide. Second dosage timings remain under review and you will be updated in due course. Parental consent is not required provided that the young person has capacity. 

In south east London, young people aged 16 and 17 years can get a vaccine in one of two ways:

  • Through a direct invitation to book from a healthcare provider
