The flu is here and it's on a roll. The CDC reports increased influenza activity throughout the country and there are increased hospitalizations and deaths, especially in people over 65 and young children. Twenty-one children have died so far this season from influenza related illness. Although the influenza vaccine doesn't cover the circulating virus as well as we would like, it is still recommended that you get your child their influenza vaccine. The vaccine can provide protection against the virus and might reduce severe outcomes such as hospitalization and death. GET VACCINATED AGAINST THE FLU!!!!!
