The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends seasonal influenza vaccine for all children six months and older.
In the 2012-2013 flu season, vaccinations prevented at least 6.6 million cases of flu-associated illness.
Last year, flu hit early and it hit hard. This year, we are lucky because the flu season hasn't yet taken off wildly; so it's not too late for you to get vaccinated and to make sure you protect yourself and your family.
The best way to be protected from the flu is to be vaccinated.
Listen in as Dr. Hank Bernstein discusses the importance of getting your child vaccinated, especially given information coming out of new studies by the AAP.
