My dad has cancer and is doing radiation everyday and i wanted to know the age group that's allowed to be around him. Is my 4 year old daughter safe?

In brief: Depends on variables

I would keep them separate during any febrile illness or after the child receives any living vaccine (varicella, mmr, nasal flu).
The oncologist may have guidelines more specific for the type of treatment.Just ask.
