Children’s Nasal Spray Flu Vaccine Now Available

The Flu Vaccine Nasal Spray is now available in Imokilly Medical Centre for those aged between 2 and 17years old. We will be running a children’s Flu Vaccine Clinic this Friday, October 15th from 2:30pm to 6pm by appointment only. To book an appointment for this Vaccine Clinic please click here. This Flu Vaccine Clinic will be open to both registered and non-registered patients but will be strictly appointment only. We will unfortunately not be able to accommodate walk-ins for vaccination due to a limited supply of vaccines. The Practice will be open for Nasal Spray vaccines only for this clinic on Friday 15th and all other routine queries will be addressed on another date.

Who can get the Nasal Spray vaccine?

The Nasal Spray Flu Vaccine is available to all children aged from 2years old up to 17 years old. There are a very small number of children that will not be able to get the Nasal Flu Vaccine (for example those who have had a severe allergic reaction to a previous dose of flu vaccine). If your child cannot get the flu vaccine using the Nasal Spray please speak to your GP to discuss a possible alternative. If your child is not a registered patient at Imokilly Medical Centre you will need to discuss possible alternatives with their own registered GP. The Nasal Spray Flu Vaccine will be given to each child by a spray once in each nostril, there is no injection involved and it is pain free.
