Ways you can protect my child against the flu... In addition to getting vaccinated, you and your children can take everyday steps to help prevent the spread of germs: These include the following:
  1. Stay away from people who are sick.
  2. If your child is sick with flu illness, try to keep him or her in a separate room from others in the household, if possible. 
  3.  CDC recommends that your sick child stay home for at least 24 hours after his or her fever is gone The fever should be gone without the use of a fever-reducing medicine. 
  4.  Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after it has been used. 
  5.  Wash hands often with soap and water. 
  6.  Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Germs spread this way.
