AAP updates vaccine recommendations for kids
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- The American Academy of Pediatrics has updated vaccine recommendations.
It's a good reminder for parents to make sure their kid's vaccines are up to date.
Children 6 months to 8-years-old should get two doses of the flu vaccine, even if they got the H1N1 shot last year. Children 7 to 10-years-old who've not been vaccinated against whooping cough should get that vaccine.
The HPV vaccine is recommended for girls 11-years-old and older, but now it's being recommended for boys aged 9 to 18-years-old as well.
