Influenza and our Kids

Flu Information

Contrary to popular belief, the influenza season often lasts until mid-May. In a February 1, 2016 health alert, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that influenza activity is increasing across the country. Because the flu can have a significant impact on an educational setting, it is crucial that parents have access to flu information and resources year round. Even though most children infected with influenza recover with little to no complications, some cases result in hospitalization and sometimes even death. In the 2014-2015 flu season, 19 influenza-associated pediatric deaths were reported in Texas. No child should suffer like this: please parents, get the flu shot for your children and for yourselves.
