Childrens Nasal Flu Spray – Who will give the children’s flu vaccination

Children aged two and three will be given the vaccination at their general practice, usually by the practice nurse.

Children who are 4 years old are also eligible for flu vaccination provided they were 3 on 31 August 2017. These children will be offered the vaccination at the practice.

Children in reception class and school years one, two, three and four will be offered their vaccination in school.

Children who are home educated will also be offered the vaccine, provided they are in an eligible school age group. Parents can obtain information about arrangements from their local NHS England Public Health Commissioning team.

Children at higher risk from flu

Children aged 2 to 17 with long-term health conditions are at higher risk from flu.

It’s especially important that they are vaccinated with the annual flu nasal spray instead of the annual flu jab, which they were previously given.
