RSV typically occurs during this time of the year; November to May.

RSV is a very contagious virus that affects the respiratory tract, usually in children under three. It can be more dangerous for children 0-3 years of age. When adults and older children have it, it's usually very mild (like a bad cold).

Help prevent RSV by washing your hands often, good hygiene, and staying away from sick people.

Please watch for symptoms to know if your baby-toddler needs medical attention; difficulty breathing, eating, or dehydration.
