According to the Australian Department of Health, children are able to get the flu vaccine from as young as 6 months of age. There are some flu vaccines that remain unsuitable for young children, but a good range for vaccination from a young age.

In the UK flu shots are offered free to those who are in the 'vulnerable' category. This includes young children, the elderly, and those with weakened immune systems. Since I fit into none of those categories, and very rarely get ill, I don't get a flu shot.
What's your secret to rarely getting ill, I seem to get every cold and bug going. Lucky you.
Just a strong immune system I guess. I usually get about two colds a year, and that's it.
I've never had it, but I'm thinking about it for myself this year as want to try to get through Winter without succumbing to the evils of the flu. I'm not sure I'll get it for my kids though, as their immune systems seem to tolerate the bugs better than mine.
Since I am not considered in a likely danger zone I don't get a flu shot for myself. Once I'm older, and assuming we still require an annual flu shot, I will start getting them.
