Flu vaccination for local authority-maintained school staff
Welcome to the local authority-maintaed staff flu vaccination page.
Here's where you can get all the information you need about the flu virus and how to get your flu vaccine.
Why the flu vaccine is important
As we approach the winter we all need to do what we can to protect ourselves, our loved ones and our colleages from flu. This is especially important this year, as we continue to fight COVID-19. Many of you will work with people who are vulnerable to flu and by you having the vaccine you are protecting them. The vaccine will also help you stay fit and well at work through the winter months, into spring.
