The 2019 Flu Season is among us, and our children are some of the most vulnerable.

Complications from flu among children can include:

  • Pneumonia: an illness where the lungs get infected and inflamed
  • Dehydration: when a child’s body loses too much water and salts, often because fluid losses are greater than from fluid intake
  • 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

Be sure to schedule your child’s flu shot before they encounter the virus.
