Pharmacists will vaccinate children as young as 10 in Victoria next year, making it the most populous state yet to expand pharmacy flu jabs to pre-teens.

Victorian Minister for Health Jenny Mikakos announced on Thursday the state would drop the age minimum for pharmacy flu immunisation — currently at 16 — ahead of the 2020 flu season.
