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. Visit for four easy steps to help prevent and treat needle pain.
The unofficial start to flu season starts in October, but many of us started seeing clinics or ads for the shot as early as last month.

Thirteen years after her leukemia diagnosis, Sara Bultsma remains inspired by the care she received at Children's Minnesota. Last month she teamed up with Dr. Yoav Messinger for the fifth time to run the Pine Tree Apple Tennis Classic 5K and support cancer research.

The staff were friendly, and took great care of our son when we were in the short stay unit. What I didn't like was that they were super slow! They told us we were getting discharge at noon but we ended up leaving like a four hours later.

Nurses and staff are nosey and don't give any privacy or respect. Don't care about the parents input or opinions. Security is rude. Few decent Doctors that truly care. Very rude to non patient children.

The nurses who cared for my son were all outstanding. They even gave him a blanket in pre-op and he absolutely loved that. All the staff were incredibly attentive to not only my child's needs but ours as well. I greatly appreciated their kindness and patience with him. I'm so thankful he was able to have his procedure done there and would definitely recommend them to anyone.

The staff are amazing! From the nurses, who are very professional and know how interact with the kids, whatever age they may be, to the doctors, who are extremely knowledgeable, capable, and gentle. I went to this hospital for a surgery and was greeted with awesome care. A few days later, I had to go to the ER because of [Personal Information Here that is none of your business], and the wait was only a few minutes, after which they took me to a room and just casually chatted with me, asking questions along the way. In the end, they solved my problem, and I came home great! Definitely giving best rating for this place!

Our daughter broke her femur clean through on Buck Hill (nothing against Buck Hill) and Children's fixed her up quickly, the surgeon seemed to be an expert in his field, and clearly explained all our options. She went through surgery in March, and by that autumn was playing soccer again. Staff is super friendly, they have a lot of activities to keep your child bored, and the rooms have fold-out beds so parents can stay.
