A four-year-old girl in Waterloo almost died and is now blind because of the flu.

Amanda said she couldn't stop her kid from being sick, but if she can save one kid, that's what she would like to do. "It is bad to see how your child is suffering".

According to mother, Amanda Phillips, and her pages, they nearly lost Jade on Christmas Eve.

On Christmas Day the girl's parents found out the flu had affected her brain.Called encephalopathy, it's a known complication of the flu, according to the CDC.

Jade's doctor ended up finding inflammation in her brain, which ended up affecting her vision and leaving her blind. Her brain could reconnect and she could see again it might just take time. 2.

Every year, dozens of children die from the flu, and a lot of them had not received a flu shot, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Thousands more children are hospitalized.

Many of those who becomes seriously ill or died were perfectly healthy before they contracted the flu.

Czech, a pediatric neurologist, diagnosed Jade with acute necrotizing encephalopathy, or ANE, a type of encephalopathy usually caused by a viral infection.

The parents rushed Jade to the hospital - where she began to have a seizure, they told the outlet.

She thought that shot was good for an entire year.

"It affected the part of her brain that perceives sight, and we don't know if she's going to get her vision back", said Czech, Jade's neurologist.

Czech prescribed steroids to relieve the swelling of her brain. "We'll know in about three to six months. Whatever recovery she has at six months, that's likely all she's going to get".

"We want parents to know they should get a flu shot every season", she added. That's because the predominant virus has been influenza B, which affects children more than adults.

The flu season normally starts towards the end of the fall, but seasonal influenza is reportedly starting much earlier this year. Flu vaccines will be available by the end of summer, and the CDC recommends ordering a vaccine by the end of October to protect against flu in the coming winter.

This year, the flu has been particularly tough on children.

It is true that the CDC flu vaccine is only 40-60% effective against the flu.

A 4-year-old girl from Iowa is recovering from a life-threatening case of the flu.

A 2014 study found that the flu vaccine reduced a child's risk of admission to the pediatric intensive care unit by 74%. A 2017 study showed the vaccine also significantly reduced a child's risk of dying from the flu, according to the CDC.

"I'm less interested in whether the vaccine prevents all cases of runny nose and whether I feel uncomfortable and don't have to go to school because of the flu", said Ratner. "That's no fun, but you get the vaccine not so much to prevent that as to prevent the chances of having a disgusting complication of the flu".

Back in Iowa, Phillips and DeLucia return to normal with jade. Phillips wrote on Facebook on the first night of her daughter's home: "My fearless girl who can't see but is loved by so many".
