Hi all, DS in reception missed the spray up the nose in October as he was not in school that day.

Should I now make an appointment at the GP for him to have it, or is it too late now it's January or do they offer it up until spring?

Anyone all clued up on this stuff?

Do you know where the team of nurses giving the vaccination was based? I'm a vaccination nurse. If a child missed the school session, you should've received a letter for a catch up clinic. If you could contact the team to see if any more clinics are being held?
If not you will need to contact your GP.
We've moved on to HPV and final school boosters now!

Unfortunately no, I have no idea where they are based.
Is the GP likely to give them though or is it too late?
The news and all the flu horror stories is making me panic now.

The GP might give it, if they have any of the vaccine.
