FLU VACCINES FOR CHILDREN – not yet available but a date will be provided shortly to book appointments for children aged 2-3 years at the practice

The nasal spray flu vaccine is free on the NHS for:

  • children aged 2 or 3 years on 31 August 2021 – born between 1 September 2017 and 31 August 2019
  • all primary school children (reception to year 6)
  • all year 7 to year 11 children in secondary school
  • children aged 2 to 17 years with long-term health conditions

If your child is aged between 6 months and 2 years and has a long-term health condition that makes them at higher risk from flu, they’ll be offered a flu vaccine injection instead of the nasal spray, This is because the nasal spray is not licensed for children under 2 years.

Children of school age will be vaccinated at school.
