Fight the Flu
  • Get your seasonal flu vaccination.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue or your arm when you cough or sneeze.
  • Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. Alcohol-based hand sanitizers are also effective.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread that way.
  • Try to avoid close contact with sick people.
  • Stay home if you become sick.
