With cold weather here, it's a sign that flu season is right around the corner.
Over the past year 115 kids and teens died from the flue, but experts say many of the deaths could have prevented with a simple vaccine.
A new report from the Centers For Disease Control reveals only 23 percent of children who were eligible for a flu shot actually got one. This may be due to a misconception that healthy children can withstand a bout of the flu.
About half of the children who died last year had no existing medical conditions putting them at risk for complications.
