People who are sick need to stay home. When your kid is sick, take the day off and be a responsible parent by keeping him/her home. This is how we will beat it. I personally know of 2 families who sent their sick kids to school and my kid caught their rot. But unlike them, I kept my kid home until she was 100%. Let's not just depend on the flu shot and take more actions in prevention by using good 'ol common sense.
