Children to be offered annual flu vaccine

The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) has recommended that all children from age 2 to 17 should have the annual influenza vaccination.

The vaccine, which will be given as a nasal spray rather than an injection, is unlikely to be offered to children before 2014.

For more information on the reasons behind this recommendation and the safety of the vaccine read the NHS flu vaccine for children Q&A.
