The Flu

Today we will discuss the flu which is a contagious respiratory disease. It is easily spread by sneezing, coughing, talking & hand contact. It is very important to wash your hands often thru out the day!

Symptoms include:
  • fever
  • chills
  • body aches
  • sore throat
  • nausea
Flu season is November thru April. To protect yourself during this time it would be best to receive the flu vaccine, either by injection or by nasal spray. If you are unable to do this you can still protect yourself by:
  • avoiding sick people
  • eat well & rest
  • wash hands often
  • change toothbrush every 3 months
  • be happy! Stress weakens your resistance to illness so keep your spirits high!!

One more important fact is that you can not get the flu from the vaccine.
