Information and promotional resources to support the 2018-19 flu vaccination programme are becoming available.

An interactive flu immunisation e-learning programme, produced by Health Education England, is available for anyone involved in delivering the flu immunisation programme, and NHS Education for Scotland has made a video for health professionals on how to administer nasal flu vaccines.

Publications now available include:

  • Protecting your child against flu leaflet, which explains which children are eligible for flu vaccination, as well as describing the disease and the vaccine (order code 2902552B)
  • 5 reasons to vaccinate your child poster, which is aimed at parents and explains the vaccine and the benefits of vaccinating children against flu (order code 2901251C).

Both publications can be ordered from the Health and Social Care publications order line.
