Doctors at Southampton General Hospital are trialling a new four-part vaccine to protect children from the flu virus. It is hoped the new vaccine will be more effective in combatting the illness.
"The quadrivalent influenza vaccine should give greater protection against the circulating flu viruses compared to the three strain version we have used in the past, but we need the help of parents to ensure we recruit quickly and complete the study vaccines before the main flu season starts."
