Influenza Vaccine is now offered to all children aged from 2 to 11 years old. The vaccine is for all children in this age group regardless of whether they are healthy or have underlying illnesses. The vaccine is called Fluenz. It is very effective in preventing influenza and in preventing transmission of influenza in children to adults. The vaccine is given by spraying a tiny amount of liquid into each nostril. No injection is necessary. The School Health Service will arrange for the flu vaccine to be administered during school term (age 4 to 11yrs).
Pre–school children aged 2 to 4 years will be vaccinated in GP surgeries.
If your school age child misses the vaccine in school we can arrange for it to be done in the Surgery
