      Avoiding the Flu this Holiday Season

      Avoiding the Flu this Holiday Season

      These next few months are full of celebrations, family dinners, office parties, and more. While we’re looking forward to the holiday festivities, it’s important to stay healthy and avoid the cold/flu symptoms that can affect your plans!

      1. Make an appointment to get your flu shot. Health officials recommend that everyone 6 months of age and older receive an influenza vaccination each and every year.
      2. Wash your hands often. The flu can be transferred by touching your mouth, nose, or eyes after touching an object with the flu virus on it. Be sure to wash your hands with warm water and soap or utilize hand sanitizer after touching infected areas.
      3. Dispose used tissues correctly. Be sure to put all used tissues in the trash to avoid transmission of virus onto surfaces or to other people.
      4. Stay home when you are sick. Stay home until at least 24 hours after your fever resolves (without the use of fever-reducing medicines) or until your symptoms have improved.
      5. See a doctor if symptoms persist or get worse. People who have the flu can get a secondary bacterial pneumonia, so it is important to see a doctor if you are having difficulty breathing, persistent chest pain, coughing up yellow or green phlegm, or experience worsening of a chronic medical condition.
