Schedule Flu Shots Now

Influenza can be deadly for children. According to the CDC, 180 children under the age of 18 died from the flu in the past flu season. The CDC recommends everyone over the age of 6 months be vaccinated every year against the flu, unless there is a medical reason to avoid doing so.

The American Academy of Pediatrics is recommending that children be vaccinated with injectable flu vaccine for the coming season. Read here about why the injected version is recommended over FluMist.
