Pudsey MP call to parents over flu vaccine for children
8:00am Monday 28th October 2013 in News
Pudsey MP Stuart Andrew is encouraging parents of young children to protect them against illness by getting the flu vaccine.
For the first time, the Department of Health is offering the vaccine to all two and three-year-old children.
Mr Andrew said: “Flu can have very serious consequences for younger people as well as the elderly and I would like to urge all of those with young children to get them protected before the winter is upon us.
“Flu is highly infectious disease and cannot be treated with antibiotics.”
