Influenza immunisation for children over 6 months of age is recommended and can be arranged by your GP. The vaccines are usually available in October each year. If a child is receiving it for the first time, a 2nd dose is repeated 4 weeks later, otherwise it is a single injection each year. For some of the needle phobic children, you can ask your hospital to carry out the immunisation. It is also recommend that parents receive the vaccine.

Pneumococcal vaccine (Pnuemovax) is often recommended for children and adults with PCD. Check with your consultant whether you should have it.
