Flu activity often begins to increase around October. To assure you and your loved ones are protected from the flu this season, it is recommended you follow the “Take 3” recommendation from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
- Make time to get a flu vaccine. Flu vaccines are updated annually. Getting vaccinated is essential to make sure you and others are protected this flu season.
- Take everyday preventative actions. Stop the spread of germs by practicing proper hand washing and covering coughs or sneezes.
- Take flu antiviral drugs. Follow your doctor’s orders, and complete the prescribed course of treatment, even if you begin to feel better before the end of treatment.
