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.
