The study was conducted at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
Researchers from the University of Pennsylvania and the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health asked parents to watch the flu news in the days before the flu shots were scheduled to go out, to check their children’s flu vaccination status, and to check the flu vaccination schedule for their children.
Researchers looked at data from a large nationwide study that included over 3,500 children, from ages 9 to 14, who were followed for up to a year.
The researchers then asked the parents about their flu vaccinations, as well as their flu vaccination and flu season.
Parents with children aged 4 to 8 were also asked about their children flu vaccinations and the flu seasons.
The children who had received a flu shot for the season had the lowest risk of respiratory illness, pneumonia, and pneumonia complications compared to those who didn, the study found.
The research was published online in the journal Pediatrics.
