Don’t forget to book your flu jab

Eligibility for free NHS flu vaccines is the same as above, plus also:

  • all children aged 2 or 3 years on 31 August 2023
  • school-aged children (from Reception to Year 11)

Adults should be invited by their GP. Once invited, you should book an appointment with your GP or a pharmacy that offers the flu vaccine as soon as possible to ensure you are protected ahead of winter.

Most children are offered the flu vaccine as a nasal spray. Younger children will be invited by their GP and school-aged children will be offered this through their schools. Parents are strongly encouraged to fill out their consent forms to enable their child to get protected.

More information about the local vaccination programme is available on the Sussex Health and Care website.
