Advice for patients or parents with faith concerns
This nasal spray flu vaccine contains a highly processed form of gelatine (porcine, derived from pigs), which is used globally in many essential medicines. Some faith groups accept the use of porcine gelatine in medical products - the decision is, of course, up to you.
For further information about porcine gelatine and this nasal flu vaccine, see www.gov.uk/government/news/vaccines-and-gelatine-phe-response
