A: 

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that everyone over six months of age take the flu shot. "I agree with the recommendations of the AAP and regularly give flu vaccines to my patients 6 months and older. It is the best way to protect children from getting the flu," Clare Bush, M.D., a pediatrician at Columbia University Medical Center Pediatrician said.
