Should I get my baby shots to prevent RSV?

Q: Should I get my baby shots to prevent RSV?


A: RSV is one of the nastiest respiratory viruses around, so I'm pretty comfortable recommending preventative shots for preemies and higher-risk babies, such as those with cardiac disease, immune system problems or asthma. While it rarely endangers healthy full-term babies or toddlers, they still can be at risk. So follow these prevention tips for all children:-Make sure everyone washes his hands before touching your baby.-Avoid people who are coughing and sneezing, and minimize your childs exposure to toddlers.-Stay out of crowds.-If someone even thinks about smoking near your child, kill him and feed his body parts to sharks.
