Protecting Children and Infants from the Flu
Children are at higher risk for the flu because their immune systems are not fully developed. Children with chronic health conditions are at even higher risk of getting the flu and experiencing complications. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services does not only recommend some children and infants be vaccinated but in some cases their parents or caregivers are encouraged to also.
