Children's Hospital Resources

Pediatric care is vital to your child’s overall health. Children’s Hospital has active services in order to provide safe, thoughtful, high-quality care for children who need it. We are sharing information from the Children’s Hospital website and invite you to visit their site to learn more.

Learn what to expect – and all the ways Children’s Hospital is keeping patients safe. These measures include increased screening measures for all team members and visitors, testing patients and symptomatic caregivers, increased availability of telehealth appointments, and limiting the number of people at locations.

For ongoing updates, a list of open locations and how to get care virtually or in person, please see Children’s Hospital’s coronavirus resources for parents and resources for healthcare professionals.

The tip sheets below are designed for parents and are based on information from organizations working to promote well-being.

Flu Guide for Parents

Influenza (also known as flu) is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses that infect the nose, throat and lungs. Flu is different from a cold, and usually comes on suddenly. Each year flu viruses cause millions of illnesses, hundreds of thousands of hospital stays and thousands or tens of thousands of deaths in the United States.
Flu can be very dangerous for children. CDC estimates that between 6,000 and 26,000 children younger than 5 years have been hospitalized each year in the United States because of influenza. Click here to read more.
