Flu Vaccine Clinic

CHILDREN 2-17 Free Clinic Friday 5th of November

In countries that have had influenza vaccination programmes for children for a number of years, they have shown reduced rates of visit to GPs, ear infections and hospital admissions including intensive care admissions for children. Having your child vaccinated protects your child and also protects the adults they have contact with from influenza.

No needles involved in the vaccination, tiny spray in to the nose. Most children report that they don't feel anything.

 

Flu Nasal Vaccine:

Your child might feel a little unsettled after the vaccine.

  •         Runny nose (coryza)

  •         Feeling a little tired (malaise)

        1 in 20 children get a fever usually the day after the vaccine​
