Fight the Flu
Make sure your children get vaccinated. It's the best
protection from the flu. Be sure to get both the seasonal and the H1N1 flu
Cover Your Cough
Teach your children to cover their mouth with a tissue
when they cough or sneeze. They can also cough or sneeze into their inner
elbow, but not their hands.
Wash Your Hands
Teach your children to wash their hands often with soap
and water. To make sre their hands get clean, have them sing the happy
birthday song twice while washing. They can also use a hand sanitizer to
clean their hands.
Stay Home When Sick
If your children are sick with the flu, keep them home
from school for at least 24 hours after their fever goes away. This means
they have no fever even when you don't give them medicine for fever.
