Are you doing your best to prevent the flu?

  1. Did you get your flu shot?
  2. Are you washing your hands regularly?
  3. Do you cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze?
  4. Are you getting enough sleep?

For some, the flu only develops into bothersome symptoms that last for about a week. For those with pre-existing medical conditions, children, senior citizens and pregnant women, the flu can pose a serious threat. For more information, contact your doctor today.
