Are there any children who aren’t suitable for the nasal spray flu vaccine?

The nasal flu vaccine may not be suitable for a small number of children, who have the following conditions:

  • severe asthma (children with mild or moderate asthma are able to have the flu nasal spray)
  • active wheezing at the time of vaccination
  • a severely weakened immune system
  • an egg allergy

These children are still able to be vaccinated using the intramuscular vaccine.
