NHS Choices guidance on children and the flu vaccine

  • The vaccine is free to all children who were 2 or 3 years old on August 31st 2018.

  • It is also free to children in Reception and Years 1 to 4 and is usually offered through the child's Primary School.  We can provide the vaccination if your child has missed it at their school.

  • It is also free to all children over the age of 10 with a long-term health condition.

The children's flu vaccine is now usually given by nasal spray.  Please note, the nasal vaccine does include pork gelatine.  We can offer an injection, which does not include pork gelatine, as an alternative.
