The flu is a contagious respiratory illness caused by the influenza virus. It can infect the nose, throat, and the lungs and sometimes can lead to serious complications, hospitalizations, and death. Saint Alphonsus recommends getting the flu shot as soon as possible.
Today, your child can get the flu shot or the flu mist at our Boise Pediatrics location. You can call them at (208) 302-5800 to set up an appointment.
