It’s coming.

Sniffles, fevers, coughing, chills and more. There’s no doubt that flu season is approaching.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), flu season hits its peak during January and February, but people can start getting the flu as early as October. It’s almost impossible to know how severe this year’s flu season will be because the flu virus can mutate without warning, and new flu viruses appear each year. The best thing you can do is educate yourself and be prepared for the flu season.

As a parent, you don’t want your child to get sick, so with all of the uncertainties surrounding flu season, how can you prevent your child from getting the flu? Unfortunately, it’s not possible to protect your child from every type of illness, but there are precautions you can take to reduce your child’s chances of getting the flu. Below, we have compiled a list of ways you can help your child avoid the flu this season.

These tips are simple things that you can do to keep your child healthy during flu season. Even though the flu can be dangerous, you can protect your child – and yourself – from the flu’s contagious symptoms. In the event that your child does get sick, keep him or her out of school and other public places in order to prevent spreading the flu to other children.
