Protect Yourself


Take preventive steps everyday such as staying away from sick people and washing your hands to reduce the spread of germs. If you are sick with flu, stay home from work or school to prevent spreading influenza to others and consider seeing your doctor early in the illness for an anti-flu prescription.

To prevent the flu:

  • Get your flu vaccine
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Stay home when you are sick
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing or wear a mask
  • Wash your hands often
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth

The CDC recommends a yearly flu vaccine for everyone 6 months of age and older as the first and most important step in protecting against this serious disease.

Getting the flu vaccine as soon as it becomes available each year is always a good idea, and the protection you get from vaccination will last throughout the flu season.
