Flu symptoms in children can often be confused with the common cold, but will be much more intense. It can be difficult to tell between the two illnesses, but symptoms of the flu typically surface more suddenly than a cold.
Common Flu Symptoms include:
High fever, often involving chills and shakes
Body aches and pains
Flu Vaccine for Children
Seasonal influenza often begins late summer or early fall and lasts until spring. The Longstreet Clinic’s Center for Pediatrics offers flu vaccinations to protect your child against seasonal flu and H1N1 (Swine Flu). Talk with your child’s pediatrician about getting the flu vaccine so that you can be protected throughout the whole season. Vaccinations are the best prevention against the flu and other infections and our highly trained providers are always available to consult with you about which vaccine is best for your child.
We understand the importance of keeping your children healthy and we are devoted to providing your family personal, quality care year-round, not just throughout their sicknesses. Contact us today to speak to our experienced pediatric team or to schedule your child’s vaccination at any of our five convenient locations.
