Best Ways to Avoid the Flu

  • Get vaccinated
  • Wash hands frequently and thoroughly with soap and water.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with your elbow or a tissue.
  • If you get sick, stay home if you can.

No vaccine is 100 percent effective; however, those who get vaccinated and still get the flu typically have far milder symptoms, for a much shorter period of time.
