Health care providers are reminding the community that it's not too late to get the flu shot.
Children who attend school or daycare are at increased risk of catching the flu. Children often share toys, hug each other, or play very close to each other. All these factors can make them vulnerable to the disease.
Vaccines are widely available and your primary care provider is a good place to start. Many pharmacies offer vaccines, including the flu shot at reduced prices.
The CDC’s program, “Vaccines for Children,” helps health care providers obtain vaccines that they can offer free to their pediatric patients.
