Flu and Young Children

Five reasons to vaccinate your child against flu:

  1. The nasal spray helps protect against u, has been given to millions of children worldwide and has an excellent safety record
  2. The nasal spray is painless and easy to have
  3. Flu can be really serious, especially for children with medical conditions like heart disease and diabetes
  4. If your child gets u you may have to take time off to look after them
  5. Protecting your child can stop u spreading to other children and the family, especially babies and grandparents, who may be at higher risk from flu

What should I do? 

This year all children aged 2 - 4 years old and children in school years one, two and three are being offered the free flu vaccination. 

You will be contacted to let you know where your child will be vaccinated.
