THE IMPORTANCE OF FLU SHOTS

The single best way to protect your children from the flu is to get them vaccinated each year. The CDC (Centers for Disease Control) and Tots’N’Teens Pediatrics recommend that everyone 6 months of age and older get a seasonal flu vaccine.

Flu shots will be available in our office starting in September for babies aged 6 months to 3 years. And available in October for children 3 to 18 years of age. Contact our office at 205-856-4440 to schedule your vaccination.

Children at greatest risk of serious flu-related complications include:

1. Children younger than 6 months old. These children are too young to be vaccinated. The best way to protect them is to make sure those around them are vaccinated.
2. Children aged 6 months up to their 5th birthday
3. American Indian or Alaskan Native children
4. Children aged 6 months through 18 years with chronic health problems including asthma, chronic lung disease, heart disease, blood disorders, diabetes, kidney or  liver disorders and weakened immune systems.

Children should be vaccinated every flu season for the best protection against the flu. Since it takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies to develop in the body that protect against influenza virus infection, it is best that children get vaccinated so they are protected before influenza begins spreading.

Please contact our office today with any questions and to schedule your child’s vaccination starting in September.Add Content...
