Who should get the flu vaccine?
The flu vaccine is routinely given on the NHS to:
- adults 65 and over
- adults over 18 to 65 at risk of flu because of long term illness
- below the age of 65 who are at increased risk from flu because of a long-term health condition
- pregnant women
- 6 months to under 4 years vaccination in surgery
- All children 4 yrs to 17 yrs at risk group nasal spray in surgery
- and if you are a carer
- For 2018, there are 3 types of flu vaccine:
- a live quadrivalent vaccine (which protects against 4 strains of flu), given as a nasal spray. This is for children and young people aged 2 to 17 years eligible for the flu vaccine
- a quadrivalent injected vaccine. This is for adults aged 18 and over but below the age of 65 who are at increased risk from flu because of a long-term health condition and for children 6 months and above in an eligible group who cannot receive the live vaccine
- an adjuvanted trivalent injected vaccine. This is for people aged 65 and over as it has been shown to be more effective in this age group
If your child is aged between 6 months and 2 years old and is in a high-risk group for flu, they will be offered an injected flu vaccine as the nasal spray is not licensed for children under 2.
