3. What will happen if I agree to my child taking part in the study?

If you and your child decide to take part, you will need to fill in and sign a consent form. If your child wants to, he/she may also fill in a form to say he/she is willing to take part.

Your doctor or nurse will then:

  • Ask you some questions about your child’s flu-like illness
  • Take a nose swab and a throat swab from your child
  • Give you some study medication for your child
  • Give you a study diary to fill in
