In addition to the 3-C's practice of Clean your hands, Cover your nose and mouth, and Containing your germs, the CDC recommends a "Take 3" approach to fight the flu:

  • Take the time to get the Flu Vaccine. Flu shots have a long and successful track record. You cannot get the flu from receiving a flu vaccine. All vaccines are approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration).

  • Stop Germs by avoiding close contact with sick people; if sick with flu-like illness, stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone without the use of fever-reducing medications; cover your nose and mouth when sneezing or coughing, preferably into your elbow or upper sleeve; wash your hands frequently; clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with germs like the flu.

  • If you get the flu, ask your doctor about antiviral drugs that can make the flu illness milder, shorten the time you are sick, and may also prevent serious flu complications. These antiviral drugs work best when started within 2 days of getting sick.
