flu shot

The flu season is fast approaching, and the flu vaccine is the best way to prevent or reduce the impact of the flu.

Other prevention methods include frequently washing your hands, covering your coughs and avoiding contact with sick people. Also, encourage sick employees to stay home when ill. If flu symptoms are present, see a doctor as soon as possible to receive antiviral medication.

The flu vaccine can keep one from getting the flu and make the illness less severe if one does end up getting the flu. The vaccine also prevents the spread of the virus to others.
