- Schools immunisation consent
The school nursing team provide an immunisation service on behalf of NHS England. It’s important that your child gets their immunisations on time to give them the best protection. The service will monitor your child’s immunisation status throughout their school life, and will be able to give advice and support on immunisations.

How to give consent or refuse an immunisation
Your child’s school will send you a link to the online consent form.
To submit consent go to schools immunisation consent.
You have up to three days before the scheduled immunisation session to submit the consent form. If you miss the submission deadline you’ll need to contact the Immunisation team to make an appointment at a catch up clinic.
You must have parental responsibility of the child to give or refuse consent. Submit one child’s details at a time, and use the same consent form link if you need to submit multiple childrens details.
Contact the team directly if your child does not attend school, is home educated or you’re having problems accessing the online form.
What happens if my child is absent?
Any children that miss their vaccinations in school either due to absence or refusal can be caught up in a community clinic setting. We aim to run catch-up clinics in each area in the school holidays. As long as there is a consent form for your child, with a contact number, we will contact you to offer a catch-up clinic appointment.
