When to go to the ER

This flu season we are seeing lots of kids with respiratory infections and many of them are requiring treatment in Emergency Departments and admission to the hospital. Many of these admissions are due to the Flu. Please be aware that the best protection against severe disease from the Flu is vaccination. If your child has not yet received their flu vaccine please schedule it ASAP!
