Immunisations

We have been contacted by the Community Immunisation Service in relation to the schools vaccination programme for the upcoming academic year. We appreciate that many parents will have concerns about whether their children will miss out on key vaccinations as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are still awaiting national guidance on immunisations in schools, and clarity on how and when schools will reopen and be able to accommodate the immunisations team. Until we have a clearer picture, we are unable to set out details of the vaccination schedule and arrangements, but please be assured that we will work closely with all schools, and will be in touch again as soon as possible. In the meantime, please feel to direct any parents raising concerns to contact us at communityimms@leicspart.nhs.uk. A wealth of information about immunisations is available on our Health for Kids (www.healthforkids.co.uk) and Health for Teens websites (www.healthforteens.co.uk)
