Paramedics had to be called to a secondary school when pupils fell ill and fainted after being given their vaccinations.

Around 10 to 15 students from Year 10 reportedly keeled over after getting their jabs at Northampton School for Boys on Tuesday.

One parent, whose son saw the drama unfold, said children were seen 'on their backs on the floor with their legs up on chairs'.

The woman, who didn't want to be named, added: 'Several different vaccines were being administered, and around 10 to 15 pupils keeled over and paramedics were called.

'The rest of the jabs were cancelled and a letter was sent home to the parents of pupils who had been given the jabs about what to do if they felt nauseous. Rumours say there may have been a duff batch of vaccines.'

The teenagers were later said to be 'well' but the school sent a letter home to parents warning them to seek medical advice if their sons started to feel ill.
