Flu vaccinations – Be wise, immunise!
- The flu nasal spray vaccine is free for children aged 2-3 years, those in primary schools and in secondary schools up to year 11.
- It is also free for children and young people who have a medical condition from the age of six months.
- Most children aged 2-3 (on 31 August 2023) will be given the flu vaccination at their GP surgery. We are asking parents of children if they have not heard from their practice by the middle of October, to get in touch to arrange an appointment for your child’s flu vaccination.
- If parents also have children of primary or secondary school age, up to year 11, they will receive information from the School Age Immunisation Service asking them to give their consent so their child can have their free vaccination at school.
