Is your child entitled to a Flu Vaccination?

Parents are being urged to use the half term to organise the free flu vaccination for their children if they are eligible.

All children aged 2, 3 and 4, and those in ‘at risk’ groups, are eligible for the vaccination and should have received a letter from their GPs inviting them to get the protection.

Those Eligible for the flu vaccinations:

  • All children aged 2, 3 and 4 on 1 September 2014
  • Children with serious medical conditions: chronic respiratory disease, heart disease, kidney disease at stage 3, 4 or 5, liver disease, splenic dysfunction, neurological disease or diabetes
  • A weakened immune system due to disease or treatment
