This may sound like common sense, but Canadian researchers have recently shown that kids who get flu shots help to protect others who haven’t been vaccinated.
Dr. Mark Loeb, a professor of pathology and molecular medicine at McMaster University says…
There is an additional benefit in immunizing children and adolescents in terms of reducing the spread of influenza in the community. It doesn’t only benefit them, but it will protect their grandparents and older people in the community as well.
Many kids aren’t aware of their potential at spreading germs. In the U.S., the seasonal flu kills around 36,000 people each year. If your kids haven’t gotten their flu shots yet, take them to your doctor or local pharmacy as soon as you can.
Let’s all do everyone else a favor by getting vaccinated.
Did your kids get their flu shots yet? Did they get the flu this year?
