It's never too late to fight the flu. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), each year, an average of 20,000 young children are hospitalized because of flu-related complications. Influenza causes more hospitalizations among children than any other vaccine-preventable disease. The single best way to protect against seasonal flu and its potential severe complications is to get a seasonal influenza vaccine each year. Flu vaccination is recommended for all children 6 months and older.
The CDC reminds you to "Take 3 Actions" to manage and prevent the spread of the flu virus:
Take 3 Actions
• Get a flu vaccine
• Take everyday preventative actions to stop the spread of germs - wash your hands often, cover your coughs and sneezes, avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth, and stay home if you are sick.
• See your doctor if you are sick and take antiviral drugs as prescribed.
