    Why don't you call the Beaufort County Health Department and find out what to do for children under the age of 12 and who are not sickly. Your child will not die from the flu if you adhere to the medical precautions. Also, you can go to www.flu.gov which is a One-stop access to U.S. Government H1N1, avian and pandemic flu information. Buy germ gel and use it, wash your hands, call your doctor if symptoms occur and most of all DON'T PANIC!!!!!!
