Childhood Flu Immunisation

Flu is a disease that spreads very rapidly, potentially causing widespread illness, especially in those who are already vulnerable because of their age or medical condition. So if children are vaccinated against flu they will not only benefit directly by being protected themselves, they will also reduce the spread of flu and help protect the whole population. In particular, they will help to protect those children and adults who cannot or do not have the vaccine. This includes children under the age of two and children with illnesses like severe asthma who can become very unwell but who cannot have the vaccine because it is not suitable.
