The annual flu vaccine significantly reduces a child’s risk of severe influenza and death.
During the 2016-17 season, more than 100 U.S. children died of the flu, and thousands more were hospitalized for severe illness or complications from the virus. Historically, more than 80 percent of children who died of influenza were not vaccinated.
TLC Pediatrics has flu vaccine available. To schedule an appointment please call (301) 352-6515.
