your kids and the flu.

Do children exhibit different symptoms?
Children exhibit similar flu symptoms as adults but are more likely to have diarrhea
or vomiting because of the illness.7
When can my child
go back to school?
If your child does get the flu, keep them home from school, day care,
or camp for at least 24 hours after their fever is gone.7

certain people who should not.3,6,8
