Prevent Seasonal Flu

Protect Your Health This Season

Besides getting your flu shot, you can also take these steps to stop the spread of germs:

  • Stay away from people who are sick and stay home when you or your child are sick for at least 24 hours after symptoms go away. 
  • Cough or sneeze into your elbow, arm or disposable tissue. If you use disposable tissue, use hand sanitizer or wash your hands afterwards.
  • Wash hands frequently and thoroughly with soap and warm water or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. 
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. 
  • Wear a mask. 

Flu can look very similar to COVID-19 and can cause a fever, cough, body aches, chills, and other symptoms. We want to remind you that flu activity usually begins to increase in late November or December. It takes a couple of weeks after vaccination for the body to build an immunity. 

Let’s stay healthy this flu season. Thank you!
