Has your child received their Flu vaccine?
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that all children ages 6 months and older receive a flu shot this season with the goal to provide the optimal protection against all strains of influenza.
The annual flu vaccine significantly reduces a child's risk of severe influenza and death, according to the AAP policy statement.
"The flu virus is unpredictable and can cause serious complications even in healthy children," said Flor M. Munoz, MD, FAAP, a member of the AAP Committee on Infectious Diseases. "Children who have been immunized are less likely to be hospitalized due to flu."
