Flu Prevention

December 18, 2019

– So the number one thing you
can do is get your flu shot, so your flu vaccination. The CDC estimates that the
influenza vaccination prevents about five million cases of flu a year. Always lots of hand-washing. If you know somebody has the flu, if you’re able to not be around them, that would certainly behoove you not to be around someone
sick with the flu. And then things like, if people are sick with the flu, some things that they can do to prevent spreading it. Same sort of things. Covering their mouth when they cough, washing their hands a lot. There can be some transmission from things that you touch as well, so avoiding those situations and keeping your hands nice and washed
will help prevent spread and help prevent you from
contracting influenza. (ponderous music) (Medical City Arlington
