In light of the current Government Guidance that is in place regarding COVID 19 and school closures, we have had to temporarily suspend the School Based Immunisation Programmes.

If you have already completed a consent form for your child this will remain valid.
Alternatively if you wish to give consent or have any queries you can call us on 03333 583 397 (option 7, option 2) or contact the team via our email : Immunisationshull@intrahealth.co.uk
