The Centers For Disease Control And Prevention is urging parents to get your kids vaccinated for the flu, even if they're otherwise healthy.

A new report found nearly half the children who died from flu complications had no underlying medical conditions or risk factors for complications.
   
Researchers say about 830 children died from flu-related complications between 2004 and 2012.

The CDC says children should start getting yearly flu shots at six months old.
