Four Ways to Fight the Flu

Get an Annual Flu Shot

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend a yearly flu vaccine as the first and most important step in protecting against flu viruses.

Wash Hands Often

Washing your hands often protects against many common illnesses, such as the flu, pink eye and the common cold.

Cover Coughs and Sneezes

The best way to cover coughs and sneezes is to use a tissue or your sleeve. Be sure to throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.

Stay Home When Sick

Stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone except to get medical care. (Your fever should be gone without the use of a fever-reducing medicine.)

If you have underlying medical conditions you are at greater risk of developing flu-related complications; you should consult your doctor if you have flu symptoms.
