How old are they Mosschops - I think it's only approved for over 3s. Do you usually vaccinate them against flu every year?

Here is the information from the manufacturer.

Dd had fluarix last year (she was 4) - no problems at all.

Yes have seen the vaccine info, just normally a few On here that like to tell you scare stories.

Me and ds1 had pandemrix 1st year swine flu came out, ds2 would have got some as i was pg.
Then couldnt get either of them vaccinated last year, i was vaccinated through work.
I work in intensive care so have massive exposure to H1N1 and would like the dcs well protected

Sorry, can't help you out with scare stories. smile We don't vaccinate against flu at all.
