There’s More You Can Do to Help Prevent Flu!

In addition to getting your flu vaccine this season, CDC also urges you to take everyday preventive actions to protect yourself and your loved ones from flu.

-Avoid close contact with sick people.

-While sick, limit contact with others as much as possible to keep from infecting them.

-If you are sick, stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone, except to get medical care or other necessities.

-Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.

-Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.

-Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. Germs spread that way.

-Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with flu viruses.
