There’s now a safe and effective nasal spray vaccine to protect children aged two years and older against flu. The vaccine is easy to give and painless and has been used safely in other countries for a number of years. Flu can be a nasty illness that can lead to a stay in hospital, especially for children with other medical conditions like heart disease and diabetes.
Protecting your child can stop the flu spreading to other children he or she may come into contact with, and to the rest of the family, in particular to grandparents, who may be at particular risk from flu.
If you have a child who is two or three years of age, your GP will contact you to arrange a vaccination appointment. If you haven’t heard by the middle of October contact your surgery to request an appointment.
