Child flu clinics for 2-3 year olds, clinic date to be advised
We recommend flu and pneumonia vaccinations as advised by the Department of Health and for patients who suffer from a long term chronic condition.
The injectable flu vaccine will continue to be offered to those aged 50 and over, pregnant women, carers and adults and babies (aged six months to two years) with a long-term medical condition.
The nasal spray flu vaccine is also for children aged two to 17 who are “at risk” from flu, such as children with long-term health conditions. Some of these children will be offered two doses of the vaccine.
Our practice recommendation for the flu vaccination
We recommend if you are in the eligible group for a free vaccination that you should at the very least give the flu vaccination serious consideration and also that if you are having the flu jab to do so at the earliest opportunity. We provide a link to answers, in our section Flu information centre, for many of the common questions referred to below.
