"When you think about giving 170 million doses of flu vaccine in this country, it protects, past year it was about 60 percent, but that's still, if you do the numbers, about 80, 90 million people who were protected,"Dr. Goedecker said".

More than 170,000 children aged between two and seven in the North East will be offered protection against the flu this winter.

Due to the widespread availability of flu vaccine, Mohave County Public Health Nursing no longer offers flu vaccination, officials said.

The school vaccination programme gets underway later this week, with parents of children in years 1, 2 and 3 being asked permission for their child to get the free nasal spray vaccination at school.

It boils down to the nasal spray simply not working. For those who get the vaccination soon, that means it has the greatest effectiveness when the risks of exposure are the highest.

The NHS have said the nasal spray flu vaccine has minimal side effects with the main one being a runny nose for a few days after a vaccination has been given. Those eligible should contact their GP, pharmacist or midwife, as appropriate, for more information.

Previous year 12.4 million people were vaccinated overall in England.

The NHS and social care workforce is also being targeted to help protect them, and reduce the risk of frontline workers spreading infection to patients, particularly those in vulnerable groups.

As summer outside on the patio becomes a distant memory and we start choosing sweaters over swimsuits on the weekend, we know it's nearly that time of year: flu season. If none of these times are convenient, most Smith's and Walgreen's offer flu shots at very affordable prices.

Professor Dame Sally Davies, chief medical officer, said: "Flu can be much more risky for children than many parents realise, and when children get flu, they tend to spread it around the whole family".

People with these conditions are eligible for the vaccination because they're more likely to develop a serious illness resulting in hospital admission if they catch flu.
