About this Service
Our Immunisation Team is responsible for the planning and delivery of all school-based immunisation programmes across Coventry, Warwickshire, Solihull, Hereford and Worcester according to a schedule agreed
with Public Health England.
Each area has its own localised team who are responsible for the delivery of the NHS national campaigns (see the tabs above). They are available to provide expert advice to children, families, other professionals and schools regarding immunisation and vaccination issues and can offer extra support to those children and young people who are worried about receiving a vaccination or who have additional needs.
All of the vaccinations will be delivered in school and parents will be issued an information pack ahead of time. These can also be found on the tabs above. If your child is unwell or absent from school on the day of the immunisation a follow up session or clinic appointments well be offered.
Schedule for 2018/19 vaccinations:
Primary School: Reception, Year 1-5 (and year 6 children attending selected special schools)
In the autumn/winter of 2018/19 the annual nasal spray flu vaccine will be available as part of the Public Health childhood vaccination programme.
