The province is advising parents whose children have had their H1N1 vaccine shots that they don’t need to get another for this current flu season.

Children aged six months to nine years fall under this bracket, according to recommendations from the National Pandemic Vaccine Working group.

Children can still receive the vaccine if requested, but only a single half-dose is required.

The province said yesterday since the new year, there have only been two lab-confirmed cases of the virus in Nova Scotia.
