The First Step to #fightflu

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. 

For most people who need only one dose of flu vaccine for the season, September and October are generally good times to be vaccinated against flu. Ideally, everyone should be vaccinated by the end of October.

Everyone 6 months and older should get a flu vaccine every season. Children under 5 (especially under 2) are at higher risk of serious flu complications. Protect them, and everyone in your household, with a flu vaccine.

Keep them Safe from COVID-19

The CDC now recommends that all children ages 6 months and older receive a COVID-19 vaccine. With the school year and flu season upon us, now is the time to make sure your child is vaccinated for COVID-19.

Even though some children experience only mild symptoms from a COVID-19 infection, there are also children who become very ill and die. Unvaccinated children, even when they have no symptoms, can still infect people around them. Communities are safest when children are vaccinated. 

CDC recommends everyone stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccinations, including all primary series doses and boosters for their age group. People ages 6 months through 4 years should get all COVID-19 primary series doses. People ages 5 years and older should get all primary series doses, and the booster dose recommended for them by CDC, if eligible.
