Flu vaccine

Flu vaccine is the best way to protect your child and family from potentially serious complications from flu. A new CDC study finds that among children ages 6 months through 17 years, flu vaccination reduced risk of being hospitalized for flu by 41% and risk of having a flu-related emergency department visit by half during the 2018-19 flu season.
