Fight the FluIt's never too late to fight the Flu. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), each year, an average of 20,000 young children are hospitalized because of flu-related complications. Influenza causes more hospitalizations among children than any other vaccine-preventable disease. The single best way to protect against seasonal flu and its potential severe complications is to get a seasonal influenza vaccine each year. Flu vaccination is recommended for all children 6 months and older.
Take 3 ActionsThe CDC reminds you to "Take 3 Actions" to manage and prevent the spread of the flu virus:
- Get a flu vaccine
- Take everyday preventative actions to stop the spread of germs - wash your hands often, cover your coughs and sneezes, avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth, and stay home if you are sick.
- See your doctor if you are sick and take antiviral drugs as prescribed.
