Parents encouraged to inoculate kids against flu now

Parents should get their kids - and themselves - vaccinated against flu as soon as possible, pediatricians advised on Monday.

There are some new vaccines on the market and while some of the newer ones might appear better, it's not worth waiting for one, the American Academy of Pediatrics said in an advisory.

"With the exception of children less than 6 months of age, everybody should go out and get their influenza vaccine as soon as the influenza vaccines are available," Dr. Michael Brady of Nationwide Children's Hospital and chairman of the Committee on Infectious Diseases for the Academy told NBC News.
