GDPR and Vaccinations in Primary Schools


A letter from Public Health England with advice on the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the delivery of the flu vaccination programme in primary schools, in particular on the use and sharing of children’s personal information to support the flu programme is attached. 


The key message is that the introduction of GDPR does not change the ways in which young people’s personal information is used and shared by schools for the purpose of providing vaccinations. The sharing of personal information remains lawful under the GDPR.
