Fluenza Vaccine


Fluenza Vaccine

Dear respected parents,

Please make yourself aware that the Nasal Flu vaccine that you will be asked to be considered for your child contains Gelatine derived from Pork.

In the autumn/winter of 2015/16 the annual nasal spray flu vaccine will be available for childrenaged two, three and four years old plus children in school years one and two as part of the NHS childhood vaccination programme. The vaccine will be offered routinely to all children aged two, three and four on August 31 2015. Children in school years one and two will be offered flu vaccination. In some parts of the country all primary school-aged children will also be offered the vaccine as part of a pilot programme. For most children, flu vaccination will be offered via a school-based programme, although in some areas it may be through alternative schemes such as pharmacies and general practice. Over time, as the programme rolls out, potentially all children between the ages of 2 and 16 will be offered vaccination against flu each year with the nasal spray.


Please see the information leaflet  and guidance provided by the Bolton Council of Mosques for the

facts on this matter and why the majority of scholars have said it is Haraam.
