Flu Vaccination Guidance for Children

Flu can be a serious threat to children. A flu vaccine reduces the risk of flu illness and potentially serious outcomes. During a COCA call this week, presenters discussed flu prevention and treatment recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics and CDC. If you’ve missed it, this recording is a great update on vaccination, coadministration of flu vaccines, coverage, and health disparities.

It’s September: Don’t Forget Your Flu Vaccine 

Anyone can get sick with flu, even healthy people. Everyone 6 months and older should get a flu vaccine with rare exceptions. September and October are generally good months to get vaccinated. Vaccination is especially important for older adults and people at higher risk of flu complications. Find a flu vaccine near you at Vaccines.gov.
