Back-to-school is a great time to protect your children against the flu. Here's why:
- Kids are more likely to be infected with the flu than adults
- They are contagious for longer periods of time
- They are more likely to pass the virus on to others
Group settings like classrooms make it easy for the virus to spread. And even though most people associate flu season with the winter months, outbreaks can actually begin as early as October.
