Flu Fighter

Staying Healthy

Flu is a nasty little bug that can give you a bad temperature, bad coughs and bad sneezes.

To prevent flu you should:

     * Catch it - Catch coughs and sneezes with a tissue.

     * Bin it - Put your tissue in a bin.

     * Kill it - Wash your hands to stop any bugs from spreading.

You can fight the flu for a whole year, by having the flu nasal spray. There are no needles just a quick spray up each of your nostrils. It may tickle a little! And your eyes might water for a short time.

We will send your parents or carers a letter to offer you the flu spray and a form that they fill in and sign before sending it back to us, to say yes or no to you having the flu spray.

On the day you have your flu spray the nurse will introduce them self and these maybe some of the questions you might be asked:

“What is your name?”

“When were you born?”

These questions let the nurse know that your parent or carer has said yes to you having your flu spray.

After being given your flu spray you will be offered a Starting Well Flu Fighter sticker. All our stickers have been designed by children in local primary schools. You can see some of our designs at the bottom of this page.
