Parents urged to vaccinate toddlers against flu

Children under five need to have a flu jab to protect them from severe illness this winter, the government's Chief Medical Officer has warned.

The benefits of vaccinating a toddler from the flu are twofold, according to Dame Sally Davies, as it protected their health and stopped them from spreading the disease. Children aged two, three and four are known as superspreaders because they are more likely to infect lots of people.

Chief Medical Officer, Professor Dame Sally Davies, expressed concern that fewer parents were using a nasal spray, which offers the same protection as the jab, compared to this time last year.

Benefits for migrants 'blocked for first four years'

EU migrants who come to the UK looking for work will not be able to claim any benefits for their first four years in Britain, even if they have a job, David Cameron is expected to say.

The Prime Minister will insist he rules "nothing out" if British demands for reform to EU membership are not met in a major speech on immigration later today. Changing the rules about when and who can claim benefits will be top of his list of demands.

He will also pledge:

  • Unemployed Europeans heading to Britain to find work will have six months to find a job or they will be kicked out, he will say in a keynote speech on immigration.
  • Those with jobs will only receive in-work benefits, such as tax credits, and social housing once they have been in the UK for four years.
  • No child benefits or tax credits for children living elsewhere in Europe will be paid out, regardless of how long an EU migrant has paid into UK coffers under the plans.
