Children 9 years and older are only recommended 1 dose of flu vaccine. For kids getting vaccinated the first time, protection only sets in after the second dose is given. So a child who needed two doses but did not get the second dose would not be considered fully vaccinated.

Fully vaccinated means the child has received the correct number of doses of flu vaccine recommended for them. Children aged 6 months through 8 years getting vaccinated for the first time are recommended to get 2 doses of flu vaccine.
