Study Finds Infants Under 6 Months Too Young for Flu Shot at High Risk to Influenza Fatalities- UV Technologies Makers of UV-Aid, Develop New Flu Prevention Alternative

The study fails to offer advice on alternative flu treatments for infants under the age of 6 months. The study did recommend individuals close to the infant receive flu vaccinations. With likely exposure to extended family members, friends, public areas, and daycare centers, the recommendation would be hard to follow.
