Influenza, also known as the flu, is a contagious illness. As cold weather returns, the flu season is among us. It is important to take preventative measures to protect yourself and your loved ones from getting the flu.

Preventing yourself from getting the flu:

  • Getting the flu vaccine is recommended for anyone 6 months of age or older; this vaccine can protect you from getting the flu.
  • Carmichael Outreach will be offering a flu clinic on October 27th and November 3rd; the flu vaccine is also available at pharmacies.

In order to stop or lessen the spread of the flu:

  • Wash your hands with soap and warm water for a minimum of 30 seconds, if soap and water is not available, an alcohol-based hand sanitizer which is at least 70% alcohol could be used.
  • It is also important to avoid close contact with any sick people.
  • Avoid touching your face.
  • Cover your coughs/sneezes with a tissue, or cough/sneeze into your inner arm in order to prevent the spread of the flu.

It can be easy to mix up a common cold and the flu. It is important to know the different signs and symptoms. Telling the difference between a cold and the flu:

  • Common symptoms of a cold are a cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, minor muscle or body aches, and mild fatigue.
  • Common symptoms of the flu are a fever, chills, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, muscle or body aches, headache, and fatigue.

Make sure to stay safe and protect yourself and others from the flu this year.
