Pediatricians recommend childhood vaccines

At least that is the advice of The American Academy of Pediatrics which released an updated schedule for childhood vaccines Monday.

The biggest change: a yearly flu shot is recommended for every child at least 6-months-old.

Doctors also recommend giving children a second dose of the Rota virus vaccine to protect them against the leading cause of severe diarrhea.

A special article by the academy also reinforces the safety and importance of inoculating children.
