Many people think of the flu as a bad cold and don't realize that it can be a very serious illness. The flu causes thousands of deaths in the US every year, even among healthy children. About 33 to 199 children and teens die each year of flu - 80% of those children were not fully vaccinated.

The flu vaccine is the best tool we have to protect children, especially those with special health care needs. With COVID still present in our communities, it is even more important to encourage flu and COVID-19 vaccination in the same visit.
