Catch Up Flu Immunisation for School Age Children Practices will be aware that this year all routine school age flu immunisation is being undertaken by the School Nursing Service. The main objective of this programme is to develop enough herd immunity to reduce transmission, rather than offer every child individual protection. However, children who miss immunisation at school will be able to go along to a couple of catch up sessions, though inevitably some will present to practices asking for immunisation after these have taken place

Practices cannot claim payment for administering the vaccine unless the child is in one of the medically “at risk” categories, and the vaccine is fairly expensive and may be in limited supply. Nonetheless, you can give it to these children if you think it is clinically appropriate – for example, because there is a vulnerable person in the household who would be at particular risk if they contracted flu.
