Avoid the Flu

Q. Interested to know best practice for avoiding the flu this season.

A. Prevention is key! The flu shot is still the best protection against the flu, and the CDC recommends that all healthy children receive the vaccine. Make sure your kids know to wash their hands often and to cough into their elbow or cover their mouths when sneezing. If your children already have the flu, keep them hydrated, comfortable, and well-rested while you ride it out. Pick any clear fluid (water, juices, broth or electrolyte solutions like Pedialyte) and watch out for signs of dehydration such as dry mouth, cracked lips, cold or dry skin, and low energy. The body’s lowered immunity can also lead to secondary bacterial infections, so alert your pediatrician if your child develops difficulty breathing or any other unusual symptoms.
