Three Easy Steps to Avoid the Flu:

Get your flu shot!

    • 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 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.

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.

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.
