CDC this year expanded its recommendations for annual influenza vaccination to include all children ages 6 months-18 years, however, only one-third of moms report that their child's pediatrician mentioned influenza vaccination for their children.

"Immunization is the best protection we have against influenza, yet many people don't realize they are recommended for vaccination," said Norman Edelman, MD, Chief Medical Officer of the American Lung Association.

The influenza season usually peaks in February or March, so vaccination should continue though the fall, winter and spring."

About the Survey

No estimates of theoretical sampling error can be calculated; a full methodology is available upon request.
