Flu Season is Here. Are You Vaccinated?

Vaccinations are available at your primary doctor’s office or any local pharmacy. Visit to find a location near you.

People who have the flu may be contagious before they even feel sick. To prevent spreading the flu, make sure to:

  • Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and warm water, or use alcohol based hand sanitizers.

  • If you feel sick with flu-like symptoms, stay at home and limit contact with others.

  • Wait at home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone to go back to work/school.

  • Cover your cough or sneeze with your sleeve or a tissue and throw that tissue away into a trashcan.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth.

Remember, if you are sick with a fever, it is recommended to wait until your fever is gone before getting a flu shot. However, per the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, you can get a flu shot if you have a respiratory illness without a fever, or if you have another mild illness.

The flu is a contagious respiratory illness whose symptoms usually come on suddenly and strong. They include:

  • headaches

  • fevers

  • chills

  • coughs

  • sore throats

  • extreme tiredness

  • runny/stuffy noses

  • and muscle or body aches
