Influenza affects individuals of all ages, with the highest rates of infection in children, especially young children. School-aged children are largely responsible for influenza virus transmission throughout their communities. The presence of a chronic medical condition like asthma increases the risk of serious illness and complications from influenza. This case addresses why a child with a chronic medical condition like asthma, along with her sibling and older family members, should receive influenza vaccination to avert the morbidity and severe complications associated with influenza infection.
