MSP ENCOURAGES PARENTS IN MID FIFE AND GLENROTHES TO MAKE USE OF FREE FLU VACCINE

JENNY GILRUTH MSP ENCOURAGES PARENTS IN MID FIFE AND GLENROTHES TO MAKE USE OF FREE FLU VACCINE  

SNP MSP Jenny Gilruth is encouraging all parents and guardians of 2-5 year olds in Mid Fife & Glenrothes 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.  

Commenting, SNP MSP Jenny Gilruth said:

“With only two weeks left until Christmas I am urging all parents or guardians in Mid Fife and Glenrothes 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, and does not contain a live virus so 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 the best defence against flu for your children and also helps reduce the spread of infectious flu.”
