Needle-free flu vaccine for Sheffield secondary school pupils

Have your say

Years seven and eight students across Sheffield are being offered a free nasal spray vaccine in school to protect them from flu.

Its hoped immunising all school children in years seven and eight should prevent them getting the flu and help stop the spread of the virus through the school, and to friends and family members who may be more vulnerable to its effects.

The immunisation is part of NHS England’s pilot scheme. It’s expected to be brought in for all children in the future.
