How to Avoid the Flu
Getting a flu shot is the best way to prevent the flu. People who are older, have a history of asthma or other respiratory illnesses, or have other chronic medical conditions should be careful to avoid contracting the flu.
Practicing good hand hygiene by using soap and water or an antibacterial hand sanitizer is important. If you are sick, wash your hands, cough or sneeze into the crook of your arm (and not your hands), stay home as much as possible when sick and wear a medical mask if you must go outside while ill with the flu.
