Flu season is here and in full force. Flu activity started earlier and with more severity than in recent years. At Children's, we have restricted our visitor policy to ensure our patients are safe from the flu.
And we are asking for your help. There are many ways to help keep you and your family healthy and safe. 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.
It's not too late to get vaccinated! Click here to locate a flu vaccine clinic in your area.

Children's has teamed up with Kohl's Cares, a division of Kohl's department stores, to make flu prevention and education simple for families. Since 2009, Kohl's Cares has awarded grants to Children's to fund the Kohl's Cares and Children's Flu Prevention Project. The project offers flu vaccine clinics and educational assemblies around the Twin Cities to teach children about flu prevention.
