The flu is dangerous for children. They may need medical care. Complications from the flu include:

  • Pneumonia
  • Dehydration
  • Worsening of long-term medical problems like heart disease or asthma
  • Brain dysfunction such as encephalopathy
  • Sinus problems and ear infections
  • In rare cases, flu complications can lead to death

Getting your children vaccinated is the best way to prevent them from contracting the flu. This can also prevent them from spreading the flu to family members. 

An updated flu vaccine is needed every year.

It is best to have your children vaccinated by the end of October. The body needs 2 weeks to develop antibodies.
