In brief: Maybe

If your kids have any chronic medical problems (like asthma), definitely get them checked.
If the fever is over101 and won't come down with tylenol (acetaminophen) or if they become very lethargic, get them checked. Flu can be very dangerous, so get them checked out if you feel like they are getting worse. And get those shots next year!
