Three Simple Steps to Avoiding the Flu
1. Get vaccinated
– Getting vaccinated is the best way to protect yourself and your loved ones from the flu. To find the seasonal flu vaccine clinics nearest you, visit FLU.gov
and type in your zip code. The Department of Health and Human Services recently teamed up with Google Maps to create this handy flu vaccine locator. Go ahead, try it out!
NOTE: Many people at high risk for flu complications have received the flu vaccine, so most states are opening their clinics to the general population. Please call ahead to the desired clinic location to confirm availability. Contact information is listed on the FLU.gov vaccine locator.
2. Be a Germ Stopper
– Cover your nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze, wash your hands often, and avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Germs spread this way. Also, stay home if you are sick and avoid close contact with people who are sick.
3. Check the Facts and Stay Informed
– Visit FLU.gov
regularly for the latest information.
