Get Smart: Know When Antibiotics Work

The CDC has developed education for families on overuse of antibiotics. To understand when an antibiotic will help with treatment of illness, check out the information available in the CDC Get Smart page.

For additional information on what you can do to use antibiotics wisely, go to the CDC Get Smart page.
