Kids need the flu shot too!! Here are 5 reasons why:
- The flu can make kids really sick with complications like bronchitis or pneumonia.
- The flu shot gives developing immune systems a boost by teaching the body to fight the flu.
- No missed work or school; sick kids have to stay home.
- Protecting your child also protects others at higher risk, especially babies and grandparents.
- The flu shot is closely monitored in Canada and has an excellent safety record.
