Colds, strep throat and other infectious illnesses get going when kids are back in school and passing things around.Take steps to stop the spread of germs and ask your health care provider if you and the kids should get a flu vaccination in the fall. Also, be sure to keep the kids home when they’re sick.

Although preventative measures can’t completely eliminate seasonal health issues, they can lessen their severity.
