Research Study for Pediatric Flu Vaccines this Fall
What is the flu?
Influenza, commonly referred to as the flu, is a highly infectious disease caused by the influenza virus. Symptoms include fever, headache, muscle soreness, cough, and sore throat. The flu can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death. During outbreaks of the flu very young children are the most at risk of having serious complications related to the flu.
Who should get vaccinated?
Currently, the Academy of Pediatrics and the CDC recommends the flu vaccine for children ages 6 months and older because these vaccines provide protection against flu germs. The single best way to protect your children from the flu is to get them vaccinated each year.
