Jeane Freeman MSP Encourages Parents to Make Use of Free Vaccine

Published date : 12 Dec 2017

JEANE FREEMAN MSP ENCOURAGES PARENTS IN TO MAKE USE OF FREE FLU VACCINE

Jeane Freeman MSP is encouraging all parents and guardians of 2-5 year olds in Carrick, Cumnock and Doon Valley to take advantage of the free flu vaccine before Christmas.

In a bid to keep children virus-free this winter, GP practices across Scotland are providing the nasal flu vaccine free of charge. 

Jeane Freeman MSP said:

“With only weeks left until Christmas I am urging all parents or guardians in Carrick, Cumnock and Doon Valley who haven’t yet done so, to take their children between the ages of two and five to their local GP for the free flu vaccine.”

“The nasal spray only takes a few minutes, is painless, will not cause flu in your child, and can protect against flu for up to a year.”

“It’s very important that children receive the vaccine, which is not only the best defence against flu for your children, it will also help reduce the spread of infectious flu.”
