Wash hands: First of all - be sure that your child (as long as he is 6 months of age or older), as well as the rest of the family is vaccinated against influenza yearly. Then, wash hands, wash hands, wash hands. You can wash with soap and water or use a hand cleanser. Other ways to avoid infection include not sharing foods or drinks.
