Overview

Understanding Children's Flu Vaccination

Influenza, commonly known as the flu, is a highly contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses. It can lead to severe illness and life-threatening complications, especially in children. In the UK, flu viruses circulate most during the winter, making it a seasonal disease.

Prevention

The Children's Flu Vaccination, specifically the nasal spray version, is an effective preventive measure. It's recommended that children receive one dose annually, typically before the flu season starts.

Children, particularly those between the ages of 2 and 8, are at a higher risk of severe flu complications. This is due to their still-developing immune systems.
