The best way to protect against the flu is to get a flu shot each year. For flu vaccine, contact your doctor, pharmacy, or grocery store. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends everyone get a flu vaccine each year as soon as it is available. Anyone six months and older is encouraged to receive the vaccine, including pregnant women. If all healthy individuals receive a flu shot, those unable to receive a flu shot will be more protected.
Tips to help stop the spread of germs at home, work, and school:
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Cough or sneeze into a tissue or a sleeve.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water to help protect yourself from germs. If soap and water are not available use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. Germs spread this way.
