Immunisation Information

The Berkshire School-aged Immunisation Team will be administering vaccinations for nasal flu and Covid-19 for students in Years 7 - 11.

Both immunisations will be on Friday 22 October

These immunisations will be delivered by an NHS team from the School-aged Immunisation Service who are trained and experienced in vaccinating children. 

If you have any queries, you are likely to find that they are answered in the leaflets linked below or follow this link to Berkshire School-aged Immunisation's FAQ.

Otherwise, please contact

Please note that Charters School is unable to respond to any queries.

MISSED THE DEADLINE?

Charters School’s consent forms for the immunisations on Friday closed at 9am Wednesday 20 October.

Any parents wishing to consent for the flu after this point will be unable to do so until 24 hours after the school session when the system will be reopened.  Parents will then need to complete the consent form from this webpage and wait for the link to be emailed to them to book into one of the catch up clinics.

Any parents that have missed the deadline to consent for Covid will need to wait until further national guidance is released as there are currently no planned catch up clinics for the Covid vaccination.

COVID-19

This is offered to children in Years 8-11. The vaccination is free and is provided to protect the children who receive the vaccine and to reduce transmission of Covid-19 in the wider population.
