No child is vaccinated with a completed consent form.
(NFID), along with public health and medical organizations, urged the public and healthcare professionals to follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendation that everyone age 6 months and older be vaccinated against influenza each year.

During the 2016-2017 flu season, the hospitalization rate was double that of the 2015-2016 season and higher across all age groups. "We encourage everyone six months and older to get vaccinated every year". Research showed that 57 percent of children who were severely ill with the flu had not gotten the flu vaccine.
