Flu is a common infection in babies and children and can be very unpleasant for them. Children under the age of 5 have the highest hospital admission rates for flu compared to other age groups.
All children aged 2 and 3 years old on 31 August 2020 are eligible for a free flu vaccination in the form of a nasal spray. However, not all parents are aware of this or take up the offer. Not only does the flu vaccine help to protect the children themselves, but by reducing the spread of flu it will also help protect family members, and others in the local community.

We thank you for your support,

Also we have had a few updates regarding the EpiPen shortage follow these links to find out more if this is a potential concern for you and you children
