Good Health Habits for Flu Prevention

An annual vaccine is the single best way to prevent the seasonal flu. But good health habits can also help prevent respiratory illness like the flu. Here are some tips to remember:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick. When you are sick, keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick too.

  • Stay home when you are sick. Avoid going to work, school or running errands to prevent those around you from getting sick.

  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing.

  • Wash your hands often to protect picking up or spreading flu germs.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth, as this is an easy way for germs to spread.

  • Practice other good health habits like getting plenty of sleep, being physically active, managing stress, drinking plenty of water and eating nutritious food.
