Don’t let the flu get you!

Three Easy Steps to Avoiding the Flu:

  1. Get your flu shot!
    • Getting a flu vaccination is the best way to prevent the flu.
    • Flu shots are most important for people at high risk and their close contacts. These people include:
      • Children
      • Pregnant women
      • People with chronic health conditions such as heart disease, asthma, etc.
      • People age 50 and older
    • Complications of the flu include pneumonia. The following people should get the pneumonia vaccine: adults 65 and older, people who have a chronic illness, have a weakened immune system or live in a nursing home. This vaccine protects against a bacteria which causes pneumonia as well as meningitis and bloodstream infections. This can be given at the same time as the flu shot if needed.
  2. Keep your hands clean!
    • Wash your hands with soap and water.
    • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze.
    • Don’t touch your eyes, nose or mouth. This is how germs can spread.
  3. Be a hero!
    • If you get the flu, try and stay away from others.
    • If you care for others who are at high risk, such as young children or older parents, get a flu shot.
    • Take antiviral drugs to treat the flu.
