Our school nurses will look different this year when they visit pupils to give them the annual flu vaccine nasal spray.
Instead of wearing normal clothes, they will be wearing scrubs and personal protective equipment (PPE), such as a mask and face visor.
This is in line with national Covid-19 infection prevention guidance.
As the PPE significantly alters the nurses’ appearance and may be off-putting for some children, we have produced a show and tell video to help familiarise the children with the new arrangements.
In the three-minute video a school nurse directly addresses primary school pupils in simple terms, explaining clearly why she and her colleagues will be wearing these funny outfits.
She also demonstrates the nasal spray for those who haven’t had it before.
We hope the video will prepare the pupils, helping them to feel more comfortable on the day the vaccinators visit.
