Is it OK for my child to have a flu jab at the same time as (or soon before or after) other vaccines?

 Timing issues mainly apply to live vaccines like MMR, chickenpox (varicella) and BCG, which should generally either be given on the same day as each other, or with at least a 4-week gap. These issues don’t apply to injected flu vaccines, which are “killed” vaccines. However, they may theoretically apply to the use of FLUENZ, the nasally administered vaccine which is currently being offered to children. Do tell the doctor or nurse about any vaccines that are likely to be due, or have recently been given, so that we can give you the best advice.
