In general, children younger than 9 years need two doses of flu vaccine the first year they get a flu shot.

If a child age 6 months to 9 years has not had two doses of flu vaccine in their life, they should get two doses this season. The two doses must be at least 4 weeks apart. They should get the first dose as soon as flu vaccine becomes available so they can get their second dose by the end of October.
