Vaccination

Childhood Asthma Center organized a flu vaccination campaign in collaboration with the L’union des Francais a l’Etranger to vaccinate  asthmatic children of Childhood Asthma Center with the flu vaccine. Hundred asthmatic children were vaccinated. Getting the vaccine is important part of preventing flare ups, since asthmatics are at higher risk of developing complications.

Childhood Asthma Center for its sixth consecutive year with the collaboration of ‘Union des Français de l’Etranger’, organized a vaccination campaign for the asthmatic children of the center who were mostly susceptible to develop respiratory infections.

Respiratory infections such as colds and the flu are one of the most common causes of asthma flare-ups, especially in young children. There’s no sure way to keep a child from getting a cold or the flu.
Every September since 2006, the CAC organizes a flu vaccination campaign in collaboration with the l’Union des Francais a l’Etranger to vaccinate a limited number of our patients (5-15 years of age) to free them from a major asthma attack trigger.
