Why Even Healthy Children Need a Flu Shot
The flu can have serious ramifications on those who get it. By getting your family a flu shot, you could save your life and the lives of those you love.
This video explains the importance of getting an annual flu vaccination, and why people, especially children, should get one. Receiving a flu shot each year can prevent inconvenient and potentially life-threatening complications. Did you know that, according to the CDC, approximately half of the children that died from flu complications last year had no other medical conditions or risk factors? A flu shot can also avert the dangers that accompany spreading the virus to an infant or elderly relative with a weaker immune system.
