In a St. Joseph Healthscene report, too many high-risk teenagers aren't getting flu shots. Vaccination rates for teens with asthma, immune system problems, and other illnesses went from just 8 to 15% from 1992 to 2002. In adolescents with high-risk conditions, flu can lead to severe illness, hospitalization, even death.
