My son has recently been diagnosed with asthma (last week)... I'm panicking a bit now as I haven't given him the flu vac.. on the nhs website it says nasal vac is not given to children with asthma specifying under 2, as it causes wheezing....my son is 4 should I get him booked in for it ?

Can you ring your GP surgery and see if they recommend injectable or sniff?

Sniff is more convenient, as it's done in schools. But if he does need injectable, then it should be straightforward to make a nurse appointment.
