Flu Prevention

Flu Season is Coming! 

  • Everyone six months old and older needs a flu shot!  Ask your provider about getting a flu shot at their office, and make an appointment.
  • If you have school-aged children, make sure they get their flu shots, too.  This prevents spread to you and others.
  • If you decide to get a flu shot at a pharmacy or clinic in your community, make sure they accept our insurance. Search for a local flu clinic
  • When you cough or sneeze, use a tissue or your inner elbow to cover your mouth – not your hands. 
  • Wash your hands often! Use soap and warm water or an alcohol-based gel. 
  • If you’re sick, stay home to prevent the spread of germs. Keep sick children home from school until they’re feeling better again. 
  • Remember, the flu and colds are caused by viruses – antibiotics won’t help! The best treatments are fluids, rest, and time.
