Health Tip: Protecting Children from the Flu

(HealthDay News) -- Flu season is in full swing. Thousands of children under the age of 5 have been hospitalized for the flu in the last decade, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says.

The CDC suggests following these precautions to protect younger children:

  • Keep yourself and the child away from people who are sick.
  • If you have flu-like symptoms, avoid contact with the child.
  • Cover your nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze.
  • Try not to touch your eyes, nose or mouth.
  • Disinfect frequently touched surfaces in the home.
