Winter campaign starts with largest flu vaccination programme

Public Health England (PHE) and NHS England have launched a campaign to help people stay well over the winter months.

The Stay Well This Winter campaign begins with a national flu vaccination programme for children. This year the programme is being extended to children in school years 1 and 2, and aims to help 3 million children between the ages of two and six.

For the first time, the youngest primary school children in 17,000 schools will be eligible to receive the free nasal spray vaccine, making this the largest school-based vaccination programme ever in England.
