Carolyn Kaltenberg said flu symptoms can appear similar to the common cold, but they are differentiated by a running temperature, body aches and fatigue. Another factor is a fear of getting the flu from the vaccine.

Dr. Cara Christ, the department's director, says parents should make sure their children are vaccinated and keep them home from school if they have flu-like symptoms.
