CDC: More kids protected from flu

Washington (AP) - More children than ever got vaccinated against the flu last year, and health officials are urging families to do even better this time around.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly 57 percent of children, were vaccinated last year.

A severe flu strain swept the country last winter, sparking a scramble for last-minute vaccinations.

The CDC it's time for people to start getting immunized.

The flu vaccine is recommended for nearly everyone ages 6 months and older.
