Flu – Nasal Spray Flu Vaccine will be offered in school from Reception to Year 11

Anyone can get flu but children have the highest rate of infection and it can be serious for them.  The vaccine can help protect your child against serious complications from flu, such as pneumonia and help protect others who may be vulnerable to complications from flu.  The nasal flu spray is the best way to protect against flu and reduce the spread of the seasonal influenza virus.

HPV – The HPV vaccine will be offered to girls and boys in Secondary School from Year 8

HPV infection is very common. There is clear evidence that the HPV vaccination can reduce your child’s chances of developing HPV-related cancers and HPV-related genital warts.  In time, it is expected the HPV vaccine will save hundreds of lives every year in the UK by preventing cancers caused by HPV.  If your child missed their HPV vaccine in school, please contact the School Nursing Immunisation Team on 07969 732790 or email immunisation.Cavuhbschoolnursing@wales.nhs.uk to discuss and/or book a catch-up clinic

It is vital that your child receives key routine scheduled vaccinations throughout their childhood and on time - please ensure these are up to date as they grow up.  Your GP practice should invite your child to receive the following vaccines however please note that if your child attends a Cardiff and Vale school but lives outside the area, you will need to contact the GP to make an appointment.

 

Pre Schoolers (offered from 3 years and 4 months of age)

  • MMR vaccine (2nd dose) protects against measles, mumps and rubella
  • 4-in-1 vaccine (booster) which protects against diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis and polio

 

Between 13-15 years

  • 3-in-1 teenage booster (Td/IPV) which protects against diphtheria, tetanus and polio
  • MenACWY which protects against Meningitis and Septicaemia.

If you are unsure, or think your child has missed any of these vaccinations, contact Child Health on 02921 836928 or your GP surgery and ask if they can check your vaccination record.

It is best to have vaccinations on time, but it is never too late to catch up on missed vaccinations. Vaccinations saves Lives.
