Prepare kids for the fight against flu this winter.

As health professionals warn there is the potential for this year’s flu season to be serious, children aged 2-5 can get vaccinated at their GP practice from October.
Every year in Scotland, children are hospitalised for treatment of flu, or its complications.
The vaccine helps protect children against flu, and is given as a painless nasal spray.

It only takes a few minutes, and provides protection for around a year.
