Flu vaccine consent

Below is a message from the Devon Integrated Children’s Service Immunisation Team. They are seeking to get electronic consent from parents for the flu vaccine this year via the Parent Portal Link below. If you would prefer to complete a paper copy, please call in to the school office or access it through the 'News & Events - Letters' page on this website.

 

‘Dear parents & carers,

 

Nasal Flu vaccination – Electronic consent

 

From September 2018 the Immunisation Team will be offering the Flu vaccination to all Primary Children from Reception to year 5. Delivery of the vaccine will run October - December 2018 across Devon, Plymouth and Torbay and this year the Immunisation Team are adopting electronic consent.

 

In order to provide electronic consent for your child’s Flu vaccination, please can we request that you access the consent portal via the following link: (Insert link) and follow the online instructions.

 

We would like to request that consent is provided electronically before Tuesday 20th November 2018. This is to ensure our nurses have sufficient time to clinically assess the information. This link is secure and unique to your child’s school. Full details and information to assist you in completing the electronic consent is detailed on the consent portal including full FAQ’s, patient information and contact details should you wish to speak to one of the school Immunisation Nurses regarding the nasal vaccination.

The e-consent process is working but we have found that the following points should address the issues that some parents are reporting:

  • To complete on a tablet or computer if unable to progress completion on a phone (this appears to especially be affecting Samsung phones).
  • If unable to find GP practice in list this can be left blank as it is not mandatory.
  • Only use link sent as the consent process is school specific.
  • If a family is in a new build property and having problems with the address when filling in the form, just add postcode without house number and enter manually using link “my address does not appear in the list”.

 

Many thanks for your cooperation’
