Ways To Prevent Pneumonia In Children

  1. Keep vaccinations up-to-date. All children, starting at 2 months, should begin a series of vaccines that prevents the bacterial type of pneumonia. All children 6 months of age or older should get a flu vaccine yearly even if they have an egg allergy.
  2. Teach children to cover their noses and mouths with facial tissue or a sleeve of their shirt when sneezing or throw away tissues after use.
  3. Teach and practice good hand washing.
  4. Wash surfaces that are touched often (like toys, tables, and doorknobs) with soap and water, or wipe them down with a disinfectant.
  5. Keep the home smoke-free.

Share this with someone you know, especially people spreading information that pneumonia is caused by a cold.
