Don't Let the Flu get you Down

Flu Season is Coming!

  • Ask your provider about getting a flu shot at their office, and make an appointment.
  • If you have school-aged children, make sure they get their flu shots, or nasal spray too.  This prevents spread to you and others.
  • If you decide to get a flu shot at a pharmacy or clinic in your community, make sure they accept our insurance. Search for a local flu clinic. Your children can get vaccines at school based clinics or their provider office.
  • When you cough or sneeze, use a tissue or your inner elbow to cover your mouth – not your hands.
  • Wash your hands often! Use soap and warm water or an alcohol-based gel.
  • If you or your child are sick, stay at home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone.
  • Remember, the flu and colds are caused by viruses – antibiotics won’t help! The best treatments are fluids, rest, and time.
