This year, swine flu is one of the main flu viruses in the UK. This means it has been included in the flu vaccine for 2010/2011. If you or your child gets a flu vaccination, no additional one is needed for swine flu.
Swine flu in children is not as severe as was originally thought, and is actually just like normal flu – it’s just a new strain.
Swine flu symptoms in children are similar to ‘ordinary’ flu symptoms and can include fever, coughs and more.
