Flu vaccination for 2-3 year olds and over 65s

NHS England wrote at the end of September to the parents/guardians of all children aged 2-3 years inviting them to have their child vaccinated against flu.

While the influenza uptake for 2-3 year olds is the highest it has ever been at this point in the season we are now contacting those parents/guardians that have not yet taken the opportunity to have their child vaccinated so that we can increase understanding of the reasons why and to encourage uptake. As a result, some parents/guardians may receive a call from the number 0300 561 0230 and will be announced as the NHS Immunisation Management Service.   Letters will also be going out shortly to those 65 and over reminding them to book their flu vaccination appointment.
