I received a letter from my child's school regarding giving permission for the nasal flu spray.

Anyones child had this and had side effects? I've not heard of it until now. Has it been used in this country for children for long? Are there any people to decided against it and why?

DS had it last year aged 2, no issues and again this year aged 3, no issues.
Nurse said he might get a temp, cold symptoms, treat with Calpol but he's had nothing except a runny nose which he's had a snotty nose for what feels like months so nothing to do with the spray.

Been about a while. All my dcs have had it for some years running; it's fab because there's no needle so is quick and painless.
We've not had any side effects.
