Bradford parents urged to get toddlers immunised against flu

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: A child receives the flu vaccination A child receives the flu vaccination

New figures suggest few parents in Bradford are taking their toddlers for their free winter flu jab.

According to the latest statistics, two thirds of parents of two and three-year-olds in the Bradford district still haven’t taken them for the vaccine. It’s the first year that the winter flu vaccine has been offered to toddlers.

Shirley Brierley, public health consultant for Bradford Council, urged parents to get their children vaccinated as soon as possible.

She said: “We’re asking parents to book an appointment with their GP to get the vaccination for their child as soon as possible.”
