I can’t make the flu clinic, where
can I get the flu vaccine?
A recent study from the CDC comprised of 282 children under the age of 5 in three U.S. cities determined the cost related to flu illness. The CDC states, “Parents had medical expenses ranging from under $300 to about $4,000 and missed between 11 and 73 hours of work, depending on whether their child was able to recover at home or was hospitalized.” Much of this cost and time lost can be prevented by receiving the flu shot every year.
Did you know?? Schools and child care facilities are required, upon request, to provide parents the immunization and vaccine exemption rates for their location. This allows parents to make an informed decision about the safest schools and child care facilities for their child and to determine where they will likely be more protected against potentially deadly diseases such as Whooping Cough.
