Protect your little one – and the rest of your family too – with the free nasal spray* flu
vaccination for 2 or 3-year-olds.
Flu kills an average of 11,000 people in England every year, and it can make children seriously ill.
The best way to protect them and the whole family from flu this winter is by vaccinating your 2 or 3-year-old and helping to stop the spread.
Don’t delay, book your little one in for their flu vaccination.
*Note: An alternative of an injected vaccine can be requested
Why should I get my little one vaccinated?
Flu can be really unpleasant for little ones, and in some cases, serious.
Children are also ‘super spreaders’, meaning they could easily pass it on to the rest of the family too.
Older children are offered the nasal flu vaccination at school. You will be asked to fill in a consent form and you can choose whether or not you want your child to have the vaccination.
The nasal flu vaccination is quick and easy, and means everyone will be protected.
Why flu vaccination is important?
Flu vaccination is important because, while flu is unpleasant for most people, it can be dangerous and even life threatening for some people, particularly those with certain health conditions.
The best time to have your flu vaccine is in the autumn or early winter before flu starts spreading. But you can get your vaccine later.
Who can have the flu vaccine?
The flu vaccine is given free on the NHS to adults who:
- are 50 and over (including those who will be 50 by 31 March 2023)
- have certain health conditions
- are pregnant
- are in long-stay residential care
- receive a carer's allowance, or are the main carer for an older or disabled person who may be at risk if you get sick
- live with someone who is more likely to get a severe infection due to a weakened immune system, such as someone living with HIV, someone who has had a transplant, or is having certain treatments for cancer, lupus or rheumatoid arthritis
