Handy tips
to keep germs at arm's length

Get
vaccinated

Vaccination is the first step to flu virus prevention. In general, all healthy people should get vaccinated. The CDC now recommends that, in addition to other high-risk groups, all healthy children get a flu vaccination.

Wash
your hands

Cold and flu viruses can be spread by indirect contact. If someone sneezes onto their hand and then touches a doorknob, the next person who touches that doorknob might be infected. Washing your hands is the best way to prevent getting sick.


Do the
elbow cough

Since viruses cling to your bare hands, you can reduce the spread of viruses by using the elbow cough instead. When you cough, simply cover your face with your entire elbow. It’s also an easy technique to teach kids.
