RSV affects almost all children by age two but because it can lead to serious complications, it’s important for parents to be prepared and recognize the warning signs. RSV Protection contains information about the disease, resources that can help parents tell if their child is at risk of serious issues, and stories from people who have been impacted by an experience with RSV.
