  • Some people, such as older people, young children, and people with certain health conditions, are at high risk for serious flu complications.

Preventing Flu

The following steps may help prevent the spread of respiratory illnesses like flu:

  • Avoid close contact
    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
    If possible, stay home from work, school, and errands when you are sick. You will help prevent others from catching your illness.
  • Cover your mouth and nose
    Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. It may prevent those around you from getting sick.
  • Clean your hands
    Washing your hands often will help protect you from germs.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth
    Germs are often spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth.
