Pediatric influenza mortality 2012-2013

By the week of May 12-18, 2013, influenza-related deaths reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) included 146 children. That is, 146 families for which the influenza season would be remembered as devastating.

When we hear reports that the vaccine might not be as effective as we had previously thought or that the season may be typical, it is easy to become complacent about the annual influenza vaccine recommendations. However, these children are the reason we must continue to explain that some protection is better than no protection. The U.S. map showing the number of pediatric deaths by state may help when you are explaining the importance of the vaccine to families:
