Flu can be horrible for young children and they can easily pass it on to those around them who could be vulnerable - even if they don't show any symptoms. Children who get flu have the same symptoms as adults – including fever, chills, aching muscles, headache, stuffy nose, dry cough and sore throat.
The free flu nasal spray is easier to give to children than the injection, and is the best way to protect your child and can prevent the spread of the virus. It is available on the NHS for children who were aged 2 or 3 on the 31 August.
If you live in Lewisham, Greenwich or Bexley, ask your GP about your child's free flu nasal spray.
Call NHS 111 if you are worried about your child's symptoms.
