Flu can be horrible for little children, so it is important to protect them from becoming unwell. The children’s flu vaccine is just a quick nasal spray, which you can get at the GP practice if your child is aged two or three, or in school from reception class to year six – there’s more information about this and a helpful video on the Stay well web pages from Bradford District Care NHS Foundation Trust.
And if you’re pregnant, you are advised to get vaccinated regardless of the stage of pregnancy you have reached. That’s because there’s strong evidence to suggest pregnant women have an increased risk of developing complications if they get flu. Take a look at the Stay well web pages or talk to a GP, midwife or pharmacist if you want more information about the injectable flu vaccine.
