Flu season is here! Have your received your flu vaccine yet? Everyone 6 months of age and older should get a flu vaccine every year, preferably by the end of October.  However, getting vaccinated even later can be protective, as long as flu viruses are circulating.

In addition to getting a flu shot, it's important to take everyday preventative actions to stop the spread of germs, including:
washing your hands often
covering mouth and nose with a tissue when sneezing or coughing
avoiding touching your eyes, nose or mouth
cleaning surfaces regularly
staying home when sick
