It is cold and flu season. The flu vaccine is strongly recommended, unless your child's healthcare provider has found reason for not providing the vaccine to your child. Handwashing is vital in reducing exposure to communicable disease. Also, eating a healthy balanced diet, keeping hydrated and getting enough rest enhances immunity. If your child is ill or should develop a a fever, please keep them home.

Please review these websites and always feel free to contact me or your healthcare provider with any additional concerns.
