Even a child can connect the dots when it comes to the flu

Oh kids! They forget to wash their hands, play in the mud, constantly pick their noses, and put everything in their mouths. But that’s just the way they are.

There are many wonderful things about children, but what’s really interesting is that they love connecting the dots. They know that if you just focus on one dot, you won’t be able to see the bigger picture. They’re smart like that, and so are we.

It’s this smart thinking that helps us doctors see the bigger picture – that by getting vaccinated ourselves, we are preventing the spread of the flu… and we can give kids a safety net so they remain carefree.

With this in mind, we decided to create Sophia – a smart, clever, and protected girl – to be the perfect ambassador for our 2015 Let kids be kids! campaign. We encourage you to watch the video and share it with other healthcare professionals, your family, and friends. Let’s all do our part: Protect yourself and those you care for. Get the flu vaccine.
