Kids need flu shots, too!
On the afternoon of
February 3, 2003, 5 1/2 year-old Alana Yaksich spent the
day with her parents and brothers watching movies, eating sundaes and playing.

Although she had a lowgrade fever from a recent sore throat (for which she had
finished a course of antibiotics), Alana enjoyed the
afternoon feeling healthy and surrounded by her friends and family.

Later that evening, she developed a
106-degree fever and was rushed to the emergency room. Within hours of her arrival at the local hospital, Alana died of
flu-related complications
that caused swelling
and injury to
her brain. To learn more about Alana, visit www.alanasflufoundation.org
