ROSEANNA URGES FLU VACCINE TAKE UP

Ms Roseanna Cunningham MSP is encouraging parents of 2- to 5-year olds in her constituency to take advantage of the free flu vaccine. 

In a bid to protect children from the virus this winter, GP practices across Scotland are providing the nasal flu vaccine free of charge.  Cunningham urged parents to get their children vaccinated before Christmas, saying:

“No-one wants their child to get sick and the flu virus can strike at anyone so it is a really good idea to get young children vaccinated.  It protects the children and helps prevent the spread of the virus to family, friends and others around them.

“It only takes a few minutes to get up to a year’s protection from flu.  The vaccine doesn’t contain live virus, has an excellent safety record and is administered by nasal spray so it is painless too.

“All parents need to do is get in touch with their GP and the necessary arrangements can be made.”
