Video: “Flu” (English) – :15 Seconds

While flu seasons vary in severity, even a mild season puts children at risk – and it is as important as ever to make sure children and their families are protected against preventable diseases like the flu. Young children are at a higher risk for developing serious complications from the flu. In fact, thousands of children younger than 5 years old are hospitalized for flu complications each year. Families without health insurance may be eligible for free or low-cost health insurance available through Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) and they can enroll at any time of the year. Vital benefits include the influenza (flu) vaccine and other age-appropriate routine immunizations.
