Take Steps Now to Prevent Flu Later

It is that time of year.  The weather is changing and soon we will be spending more time indoors.  Flu season will be here before we know it.  The Center for Disease Control recommends 3 steps to prevent the flu.  The second is washing hands often.  The third is avoiding contact with people who have the flu and avoiding touching things they have touched.  Wash door knobs and light switches often.

The number one prevention step is getting the flu shot.  You must get a new one every year.  The shots are meant to combat the virus strains that are thought to be the most prevalent for the upcoming season.  The flu shot must be taken before you become sick with the flu, so now is the perfect time.

Here is some more information about flu prevention from the CDC.
