Flu Immunisation 2018/2019

Flu is very infectious and can be serious. Flu can lead to complications that may result in hospitalisation or even death.

Even healthy children can become seriously ill from flu and can spread it to family, friends and others. Every year in Scotland, children are hospitalised for the treatment of flu or its complications.

All children aged 2–5 years as of 1 September 2018 and not yet in school will be offered the nasal vaccine between October and December.

You’ll be sent a letter about contacting your GP practice to arrange an appointment for your child.
