While flu is most unsafe for adults over the age of 65 and children under the age of 5, it can turn deadly for anyone. The flu vaccine is safe and helps protect children from flu.

"If your child presents any flu-like symptoms such as a headache and/or stomachache, body aches, or fever, call a doctor". Young children, older people and those with certain health conditions are at especially high risk for serious complications. "You should get your child to a doctor quickly", Dr. Phillips said.

Some health problems that are known to make children more vulnerable to flu include asthma, diabetes and disorders of the brain or nervous system. Plus, the flu virus can only survive about 24 hours on a hard surface. Alcohol based gels are the next best thing if you don't have access to soap and water. If you contract it, there are prescription medications like Tamiflu and Relenza (or zanamivir), that can be used to ease symptoms, but they won't get rid of them. If you have more than one bathroom, have the sick person use one and well people use the other. "It is very important to know the signs and symptoms that indicate when someone is very sick from the flu and needs help right away".
