Flu Vaccinations 2020-21
Is your child aged 2 or 3 years old?
Children in this age group are eligible for
The flu nasal spray at your practice.
The nasal spray is painless and easy to administer. This nasal spray helps protect your child against flu. Protecting your child can also stop flu spreading to other children and help protect more vulnerable friends and family, especially babies and grandparents, who may be at higher risk from flu.
We are running our Child flu clinic on the afternoon of
Thursday 8th October 2020 between 2-5pm
The vaccination is free and recommended for young children. The vaccination will be given via a quick and simple spray up the nose.
