Quick Tips

Aside from getting vaccinated, people can take several simple steps to protect themselves and their loved ones from influenza:

  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and warm water. Teach children the same habits.

  • Cover your nose and mouth when you cough and sneeze, preferably with a facial tissue or your arm, not your hands. Promptly discard used facial tissues.

  • If you are sick with cough and/or fever, stay home from work or school until you recover.

  • Clean surfaces you touch frequently (doorknobs, water faucets, refrigerator handle, telephones).

  • Contact your medical provider if you are experiencing severe cold or flu symptoms that you believe require medical attention.
