Kohl's Cares and Children's Flu Prevention Project

Influenza is now widespread in Minnesota. Learn more from the Children's director of infection prevention.

Children's has taken the necessary steps to limit exposure to our patients and their families. We have restricted our visitor policy at both our Minneapolis and St. Paul campuses, as well as The Mother Baby Center. We are also dedicated to helping you and your family stay healthy and safe from the flu. That's why we've teamed up with Kohl's Cares to provide education and resources to help make flu prevention simple.

Influenza, commonly known as the flu, is a serious respiratory illness. Symptoms can include fever, cough, sore throat, muscle aches, fatigue, congestion, a runny nose and, in extreme cases, death. Vaccination is the best way to prevent the flu. Children's offers many ways for your child to get vaccinated. Find a location ยป
