Healthy Habits to Prevent the Flu

 

The single best way to prevent seasonal flu is to get vaccinated each year, but practicing healthy habits can also help stop the spread of germs and prevent respiratory illnesses like the flu.

Here are a few steps to protect yourself from the flu:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick. If possible, stay home from work, school, and errands when you are sick.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing.
  • Wash your hands often. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs are often spread when you touch something that is contaminated and then touch your eyes, nose, or mouth.

Get care now!

 

If you are experiencing flu-like symptoms, turn to us for a prompt diagnosis and comprehensive care. VISN 4 Tele Urgent Care allows you to connect virtually to a VA health care provider privately and securely over phone or using VA Video Connect.
