The flu season is here and by now you have likely heard how widespread the flu activity is this year. If you have had the flu or know someone who has you know how serious it can be.
Steps that will help to minimize your chances of getting the flu include staying away from people who are sick, covering coughs and sneezes and frequent handwashing to help slow the spread of germs.
Getting a flu vaccination each year may also be helpful. If you have not yet received a flu vaccination this year you may want to consult with Advantage Care Health Centers @ 516-686-4400, your local pharmacy or contact your doctor to schedule an appointment.
