The AAP recently released a six-part course series that provides an overview of the newly published AAP policy on the prevention and treatment of influenza in children for the 2020-21 influenza season.  Pediatric health care professionals will learn from national experts what seasonal influenza vaccines and antiviral medications are recommended for infants, children, and adolescents. Pediatricians play an important role in encouraging vaccination among their patients, their staff, and the community, as well as in the prompt diagnosis and treatment of influenza to reduce childhood morbidity and mortality. This course provides an overview of strategies to prevent, diagnose and treat influenza in pediatric patients, especially those at highest risk, during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This course is provided at no cost to the participant (AAP members, resident members, fellows in training, medical student member, and non-members). Continuing medical education is not included. This course can be accessed on PediaLink:
