During the Fall each year, we want to ensure as many kids (and their parents) as possible receive the influenza vaccine.
Unlike the common cold, flu can lead to pneumonia or other serious illness. Kids get the flu most often, and kids less than 5 are at greater risk of complications.
The best way to stay healthy in flu season is to get the flu shot early, wash hands diligently and frequently and stay away from sick people.
Vaccines can be scary for your child, but we can make it easier!
Here are my top tips to prepare for your child’s flu shot:
About the author
Hi, I’m Dr. Dina Kulik
I live in Toronto, Canada with my very supportive husband, four energetic and delicious sons (all under 10 years old) and two male dogs.
I am the founder and director of Kidcrew™, I work as a pediatrician and Emergency Medicine Physician.
I’m a spin fanatic and adrenaline junky, needing constant stimulation to keep from getting bored (maybe that’s where the kids get it from?). I thrive in organized chaos. Sound familiar parents?
Through this site, and my Kidcrew™ website, I’m hoping to get the conversation started on all things related to children’s health. From breastfeeding challenges, to solid food introduction to managing night terrors – I’ve been through it all both personally and professionally.
Raising healthy, adaptable children is a challenge. No one does perfectly and no one comes out unscathed. Survival is the goal most days!
Let’s chat and make it just a little bit easier with tips and tricks for parenting.
I look forward to connecting!
