When should kids get their flu shots? Good question! Patsy Stinchfield, nurse practitioner at Children’s Minnesota, joined WCCO-TV with more info on the flu vaccine. And because we know getting shots can be scary for kids, we created Children’s Comfort Promise to help ease your child’s fears during these types of procedures.
