Immunisation 3 year contract

Flu nasal spray

Our immunisation team was awarded a three year contract after commissioners were impressed by their previous efforts to build long standing relationships with schools in Berkshire, in particular their efforts to include children from diverse backgrounds.

One particular initiative was the Slough area team’s discussions with local religious leaders to provide reassurance about vaccines, where religious restrictions preclude ingredients like pork products.

The programme will be delivered across Berkshire and will work towards preventing school aged children from developing vaccine preventable childhood diseases, such as measles and meningitis.
Our current nasal flu programme (which is from reception up to year 4) has so far vaccinated over 19,000 children across Berkshire and is averaging around 60% uptake which is 10% higher than expected.
