Offer of non porcine flu vaccination
NHS England and Public Health England have identified, this season, an offer of inactivated influenza vaccine (IIV) being made to children whose parents refuse live attenuated influenza vaccine (LAIV) due to the porcine gelatine content.
Birmingham Community Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust have been advised by commissioners that they can now approach parents to request expressions of interest with regards to this offer.
The offer of this vaccination will be delivered in a clinic setting and will be dependent on both vaccine availability and the capacity within the Immunisation Team to deliver this offer at short request.
If you would like further information on this please contact the Immunisation Team on 0121 466 3440
