LOCAL doctors are urging parents of children between the ages of two and seven to make sure their child has their flu nasal vaccination.

Dr Jonathan Wells, Chair and Clinical Lead for NHS Redditch and Bromsgrove CCG said: “We know that children easily spread germs through bad hygiene, such as sneezing and not washing their hands properly.

“Vaccinating your child will not only protect them but also help to reduce the chance of flu spreading to others, especially amongst the vulnerable, such as babies, older people, pregnant women and people with serious long term illnesses.”

The nasal spray vaccination is available free on the NHS.
