Have low grade fever, 99.5 and nauseous when I eat something. Can I have the stomach flu in the summer?

In brief: Yes

Flu really refers to influenza, which is typically a winter bug and affects mostly the respiratory system.
"Stomach flu" is a nonmedical term people use for any virus that affects the GI tract. GI viruses can happen at any time of year. If your symptoms persist for more than one week, you should see your doctor.
