This vaccination is recommended to help protect your child against flu.
Flu can be an unpleasant illness and sometimes causes serious complications. Vaccinating your child will also help to protect more vulnerable family and friends by preventing the spread of flu.
The vaccination is a quick and simple spray up the nose – it’s also free! Even if your child had it last year, we still recommend that they have the flu vaccine again this year.
Please see link below for a child friendly video on flu. You and your child may find it beneficial to watch prior to them being immunised.
