It’s not too late to get the flu… or your vaccine

With flu season at its peak, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggest avoid contact with sick people; while sick, limit contact with others and stay home if possible; cover mouth and nose while coughing and sneezing; and avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth. According to the CDC another essential part of preventing the spread of the flu virus is properly washing and sanitizing hands regularly. To wash your hands, wet your hands with clean running water and apply antibacterial soap. Rub hands together to lather and scrub well; making sure to clean the backs of your hands and underneath the fingernails as well. Continue rubbing hands for approximately 20 seconds. Rinse, and dry your hands using a clean towel or by air drying. (U.S. Marine Corps Photo by Sgt. Grace L. Waladkewics/Released)
