Getting flu is horrible! It can cause a fever, a blocked nose, a sore throat, aches and tiredness. In the most serious cases, it can cause bronchitis and pneumonia.
The nasal spray vaccine is the best defence children have against flu. It’s free, safe and painless too!
Children are ‘super spreaders’ of flu , so help protect you and your family. You will be offered a free nasal spray at school. No nasty needles, it is just a squirt up the nose. The free vaccine helps to protect you and reduces the chance of flu spreading to your friends and family.
The vaccine is free of charge to all children aged two and three, as well as pupils from Reception through to Year 6 and older children with certain long-term health conditions. It is delivered without the use of needles via a quick and painless nasal spray.
