The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends treatment with an anti-viral medication for the following groups of people:
Children under the age of 2
People over the age of 65
Pregnant and postpartum women
People with certain chronic medical problems
If your child is over the age of 2 and contracts influenza, your pediatrician will determine the severity of illness and if medication is necessary. Of course, the best way to prevent the flu is with an annual influenza vaccine!
