UNDATED (www.incnow.tv) - According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention more than a million Americans are hospitalized annually with pneumonia.

While this disease can be deadly to adults and the elderly, it is worse when it involves children.

The easiest way to combat this is to ensure your children are getting their annual vaccinations.

The U.S. CDC recommends getting children immunized as early as 6-months-old.
