Get the Flu Shot Now!
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the best way to protect against the flu is to get vaccinated each year in the fall. Everyone 6 months of age and older should get the flu vaccine as soon as the current season’s vaccines are available. Here in Chattanooga, you can get one in no time at all by making a quick stop at a local pharmacy or doctor’s office. Along with getting a flu shot, taking other preventative measures can decrease your chances of contracting the illness. Simple precautions like avoiding close contact with sick people, washing your hands often with soap and warm water, avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with your hands, and disinfecting surfaces that may be contaminated with flu germs can help you stay healthy and happy.
