Still healthy people will not have any trouble being with kids and these people can actually do without a vaccine for sometime. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has revealed that while the activity of the flu virus this season has quietened, but it is still higher than normal.

So parents, this holiday season, be concerned, but do not panic. If you kid is already sick, it may be better to stay at home.
