The children's nasal flu programme has been expanded in schools to include Year R as well as Years 1, 2, 3 & 4. Flu can be a very unpleasant illness in children, with serious complications such as bronchitis and pneumonia. Annual immunisation provides important protection and helps reduce the spread of flu.
Almost all children will be able to have the vaccine as a nasal spray (up the nose), which is a quick and painless process.
