This poster is aimed at parents and explains the vaccine and the benefits of vaccinating children against flu.

  • Protect your child. The vaccine will help protect your child against flu and serious complications such as bronchitis and pneumonia
  • Protect you, your friends and family. Vaccinating your child will help protect more vulnerable friends and family
  • No injection needed. The nasal spray is painless and easy to have
  • It’s better than flu. The nasal spray helps protect against flu, has been given to millions of children worldwide and has an excellent safety record
  • Avoid costs. If your child gets flu, you may have to take time off work or arrange alternative childcare

What should I do?

Contact your GP if your child is aged two or three years old and you haven’t heard from their GP by early November. If your child is at primary school and is eligible, the school will send you a consent form. Please sign and return it. If your child has a health condition that puts them at greater risk from flu, they are also eligible for the flu vaccine.

It is best to have the flu vaccination in the Autumn before any outbreaks of flu.

Remember that you need it every year, so don’t assume you are protected because you had one last year.

Healthy Tips For Primary School Age Children

Primary school children are all growing at different rates and are in different stages of development. Read more

Primary school children are all growing at different rates and are in different stages of development. So it’s important for them to have a nutritious diet with balanced meals, and healthy snacks and drinks in between.

Children grow up fast and need to eat nutritious foods that provide energy, vitamins and minerals to support their growth and development.

This colourful booklet will explain how you can support those needs. It will explain why it is important for children to keep active and to join in with energetic play and activities.

At this age, children should be eating family meals, and learning good habits around food at the table. Older ones may be learning how to make their own simple meals and snacks. Later it looks at packed lunch and family meal ideas to keep you going throughout the week.
