I do know rats can get certain ailments that humans get. But I havent seen anything about the flu bug (the pukey flu) My youngest son had a 24 hour bug and was vomiting, we wouldnt allow him to handle the rattie boys as I wasnt sure if they could get sick. Silly question, But I wanted to be on the safe side for the sake of all :)

Nope. Rats can't vomit. :) They can get URI's (Upper Respiratory Infections) and the like, but most of the illnesses we get can't be passed on to rats. I think a strep bacteria (but not strep throat itself) and one type of pneumonia are about the only illnesses rats can "catch" form humans.
