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.
