What to Do if You Get the Flu
Lots of people get the flu each year, but we hope you're not one of them! If it does happen to you, what should you do? Here are some tips:
Most of the time you will get better in about a week, but it's important to let your parents know if you have trouble breathing, your muscles really hurt, you feel confused, or if you start feeling worse at any time. These could be signs that you need to see your doctor again.
From now on, be sure to get the flu vaccine every year so that you're less likely to get the flu!
