After Deadly 2017 Flu Season, Doctors Warn Parents: Now is the Time to Get a Flu Shot

Things to know about the vaccine: 

  • Children should receive the shot no later than the end of October.
  • A flu shot is preferred over a nasal spray because the shot offers more consistent protection against strains of the virus.
  • Pregnant women can get a flu shot at any point during pregnancy. Vaccination also is safe during breastfeeding for mothers and their infants.

Of course, there are several natural remedies out there that claim to protect your kids and family from the flu. Still the AAP reports vaccination remains the best available preventive measure against influenza illness.
