Healthy Schools and the School Nursing Service deliver the following programmes in Primary Schools:

 Vaccinations

Second only to clean drinking water, vaccinations are one of the most effective ways to protect the public against a variety of infectious diseases.  The World Health Organisation estimates that 3 million lives are saved every year worldwide through immunisation.  The nasal flu vaccination is offered in school by the School Nursing Service who will provide information to you prior to the programme being delivered along with a consent form that will need to be signed by a parent/guardian and returned to the school.  For further information about the programme click here.
