Flu Vaccination for 2 and 3 year olds.

It is likely that flu and COVID-19 will both be circulating at the same time which means that it is more important than ever this year to help protect against flu. 

Contact your child's GP if your child was aged two or three years old (on 31st August of the current flu season) and you haven't heard from them by early November.
