Bye-Bye Summer…Hello Flu?

The carefree days of summer are officially over and cooler fall weather is on the horizon (thank goodness!) but, that means two things: jackets and colds!  It’s the time of year where our children not only bring stacks of school papers home but also the occasional cold they received from a friend! 

 

Early autumn is the perfect time to make an appointment for their annual flu vaccine.  Protecting your asthmatic child this flu season will go a long way in decreasing the number of asthma attacks they have and number of missed school days.   Most doctors’ offices now have the first rounds of the vaccine available for those most at risk…the very young, the old and the immunocompromised. 

 

So go ahead, make your appointment and enjoy all that fall has to offer with your children; apples, falling leaves, Halloween and hopefully cooler temperatures…sooner rather than later!
