Buses across Oxfordshire will carry an advertising campaign encouraging parents to vaccinate their children against flu. Children up until the age of four are entitled to free flu jabs that can be administered by a GP or school nurse.

Flu can be serious for young children. Help protect them from flu with one simple nasal spray. The vaccination is free, fast and painless so don't put it off
