Regarding your concern, I want to tell you that children aged 6 months through 8 years require 2 doses of influenza vaccine (administered a minimum of 4 weeks apart) to optimize immune response.

The vaccine is available in injectable form and intranasal form.

Therefore, you should consult your nearby Pediatrician to vaccinate your child.

Do write back in case you have follow up queries to ask.
