CDC: All Kids Should Get Flu Shot

- ATLANTA -- The CDC is urging parents to get their kids vaccinated for the flu, even if they're otherwise healthy.

A new report found nearly half of kids who died from flu complications had no underlying medical conditions or risk factors.

Experts say more than 800 children died from flu-related complications between 2004 and 2012.

The CDC says children should start getting yearly flu shots at 6 months old.
