Hi, I’m Dr. Ilan Shapiro, with today’s tip for kids from the American Academy of Pediatrics. Influenza can be serious. It causes up to 10 days of fever, making you miss work or school and kids are at higher risk for serious complications. That’s why the flu shot is essential for all children 6 months and older, every year. Make sure to get your entire family the flu shot this season. For more information, visit HealthyChildren.org, or talk with your pediatrician.
