Who needs a flu vaccine?
Everyone, Every Year!
Even healthy people can get the flu, and it can be serious.
That's why everyone age 6 months and older should get a flu vaccine.
This season, protect yourself — and those around you — by getting a flu vaccine.
Remember, the FLU ends with "U"!
Here's what you can do:
Everyone over 6 months old should be immunized. Call your physician or pharmacy to find out where you can get a flu shot. You can also go to www.flu.gov and enter your zip code in the Flu Vaccine Finder.
COVER YOUR SNEEZE!
Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue. Throw the tissue
in the trash, then wash your hands.
WASH YOUR HANDS!
Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for 20 seconds (about the time it takes to sing “Happy Birthday” twice.) Teach your children to do this and set a good example by doing it yourself.
Get plenty of rest, eat nutritious foods, stay physically
Flu is easily spread from person to person. If you’re sick, protect others by staying home and getting well. You’ll appreciate it when others do the same.
