Have you got a flu shot for your child

With the flu season peaking, it is time to consider getting your child vaccinated with the influenza vaccine. The vaccine claims to provide protection against 3 or 4 strains of virus for a year atleast—which effectively means, lot more healthy days and no missing out on school either.

I completely agree with priyanka. flu vaccines are not of much benefit as there are hundreds of viruses for cold and cough and the child cant be vaccinated for each of them. Instead there should be focus on increasing the immunity of the child.

Flu vaccines r only indicated for high risk babies or with family history of flu, asthma etc. Otherwise flu shots unnecessarily given can do more harm by decreasing immunity of child. Normal cold and cough improves immunity and disease fighting strength of children.

why to. hav flu vaccine wen. u dnt hv tat risk of hving flu. it shud b advised only if its epidemic around ur city. n. as such a baby of 6months old is well protected from. outside atmosphere untill d members of house tak gd care of their own health. taking unnecessary shots wud only lead to decreased immunity.
