Can children have an influenza immunisation?

Answer: 

Yes.  The vaccine can be given to children aged 6 months and over. The influenza vaccine is free for children aged four years and under who have had a stay in hospital for asthma or other breathing problems or have a medical condition that increase the risk of acquiring influenza or developing complications from influenza. For more information, talk to your doctor or nurse.
