Why children should get the flu vaccine

The flu vaccine helps to protect children against flu.
Most children who get the flu have mild symptoms. But children and young people with chronic health conditions are at risk of serious complications from flu.

In some children, flu can lead to serious problems such as:

  • pneumonia
  • bronchitis
  • inflammation of the brain (encephalitis)

Children with these complications may need hospital treatment. Some may need intensive care.

In the last 10 years in Ireland, almost 5,000 children were admitted to hospital with complications of flu. Almost 200 children had treatment in intensive care and 40 children died.

Children can catch and spread flu easily. The children’s flu vaccine can help to prevent the spread of flu in schools and at home. This keeps everyone safe.

Type of vaccine for children

Children will get a nasal spray vaccine. It’s called the live attenuated influenza vaccine (LAIV) nasal spray vaccine.

It’s known by the brand name Fluenz Tetra and manufactured by AstraZeneca AB.

This flu vaccine is approved for children aged 2 to 17 years.

If your child has been told they cannot have the nasal flu vaccine, talk to your GP or pharmacist about them getting the vaccine as an injection.

If your child is under 2 years and at risk of complications from flu, they can get a different type of flu vaccine by injection instead of the nasal spray.

Most children only need 1 dose of the vaccine each flu season. Some children aged 2 to 8 years with chronic health conditions may need 2 doses if they have never had the flu vaccine before. Your GP will know if they need 2 doses. The doses are given 4 weeks apart.
