Yes! The flu season is here. It’s important to remember that protecting our children from the flu is not just about keeping them healthy, it’s also about keeping our communities healthy. By getting a flu vaccine, not only are children less likely to get sick, but they also reduce the spread of the flu to those who are more vulnerable, such as the elderly and individuals with compromised immune systems.
Children younger than 5 and children with asthma or certain chronic health conditions may be at higher risk of developing serious complications.
Among flu-related pediatric deaths, around 80% were in children not fully vaccinated against flu. This is why it is so important for children 6 months and older to get vaccinated each year.
To schedule a flu vaccine, or to find out more, call LBU at (213) 540-0300 to make an appointment. We look forward to helping you.
