Flu Vaccination Consent Form and Information

Dear Parents,

Beijing United Family Hospital (BJU) is visiting BSB on Tuesday the 18th November to administer on-site flu vaccinations. The opportunity to receive the flu vaccination is extended to include students and their family members. Each vaccination will cost 85RMB per person and will be available to anyone over the age of 3 years old.

BJU is providing Fluarix, which is an inactivated and purified split influenza vaccine. The antigen composition and strains for the 2014 influenza season corresponds to the following types:

  • A/California/7/2009 (H1N1)pdm09-like virus
  • A(H3N2) virus antigenically similar to the prototype virus A/Victoria/361/2011
  • B/Massachusetts/2/2012-like virus

The latest recommendation from the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP –from the Centre’s of Disease Control and Prevention) calls for routine vaccination for those aged 6 months and older.

Even if you received the flu vaccination last year, influenza viruses are constantly changing. Residual antibodies to last year’s flu strain may not be enough to protect you from getting sick this season. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone get vaccinated against the flu annually.

A consent form will come home with your child and you can also find it electronically attached with this letter. If you would like to take up this opportunity for your child or family member, please complete one consent form per person and return it with the correct money to your child’s teacher (nurses for those children in Secondary).

Parents of children in EYFS, KS1 and Years 3 & 4 should ideally be accompanied when they have the vaccination. Please write on the bottom of the consent form that you would like to do this and your preferred time. Please also remember to send your child in with their vaccination record card/book so that the hospital staff can update it.

Please return the completed consent forms to school prior to the 11th November with the 85RMB so that BJU can prepare the vaccinations. Please try to send the exact amount of money in, particularly if it is just your child attending as we do not take responsibility if your child misplaces the change given.

Please feel free to contact Sarah, Jess or Lily if you have any questions.

Kind Regards

The School Nursing team
