Quick Tips
Aside from getting vaccinated, people can take several simple steps to protect themselves and their loved ones from influenza:

  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and warm water. Teach children the same habits.
  • Cover your nose and mouth when you cough and sneeze, preferably with a facial tissue or your arm, not your hands. Promptly discard used facial tissues.
  • If you are sick with cough and/or fever, stay home from work or school until you recover
  • Clean surfaces you touch frequently (doorknobs, water faucets, refrigerator handle, telephones)
  • Contact your medical provider if you are experiencing severe cold or flu symptoms that you believe require medical attention

Wash your hands with soap and clean running water. Visit www.cdc.gov/h1n1 for more information.       Lávese las manos con agua limpia y jabón. Para obtener más información consulte www.cdc.gov/h1n1flu/espanol/
