Can You Afford to Get the Flu?

September 01, 2015 by Kathy Nellor

Flu season is upon us and it’s time to ask yourself, “Can I afford to get the flu?” The single best way to prevent seasonal influenza is to get vaccinated!

Additional ways to prevent getting sick include:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick or with others if you are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing.
  • Clean your hands frequently.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
  • Practice good health habits, such as getting plenty of sleep, being physically active, managing your stress, drinking plenty of fluids, and eating nutritious food, etc.
