CDC Recommends Flu Shots for Kids


Atlanta, Ga.
Parents are being advised to get their children vaccinated for the flu, even if they're otherwise healthy. That word comes from the Centers for Disease Control.

A new report found that nearly half of kids who died from flu complications had no underlying medical conditions or risk factors.

Researchers say about 830 children died from flu-related complications between 2004 and 2012.

The CDC says children should start getting yearly flu shots at six months old.
