Sick of the flu vaccine?

Since 2008, annual flu vaccination has been recommended for all US children 6 months to 18 years. Despite public health efforts, flu vaccination rates remain below target levels and lag behind most other childhood vaccines.

How do parents perceive the flu vaccine versus other childhood vaccines? The National Poll on Children’s Health asked parents to compare flu vaccine to other vaccines recommended during childhood. The results of this new National Poll on Children’s Health will be released next week. Make sure to sign up for our email list so you don’t miss it.
