Tuesday, August 11, 2015
Imagine no missed work. Imagine no trips to the doctor’s office or emergency room. Imagine no school closings due to illness....
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends everyone over 6 months old get a FLU SHOT every fall. Why, you ask?
Sterling Research will be conducting a flu vaccine research study in September; if interested, please contact us at 513-621-5112. Space is limited.
Each year 20,000 children are hospitalized due to flu complications
- During the 2014 flu season, more than 100 flu-related pediatric deaths were reported
- Children with chronic health problems, such as asthma, are at higher risk for complications
- Other high-risk groups include adults over 65 and pregnant women
- Influenza is responsible for some of the worst disease outbreaks in US history
