1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

It is approved for infants after 6 mo of age and recommended yearly.
The first season of use two doses are required a month apart under age 6. I think it is sad to let kids get flu when such a simple vaccine can prevent it. They are often more involved in settings where it is easily transferred, like day care or school.
