Flu, or influenza, is a contagious respiratory illness that can lead to hospitalization and even death. Each year the season is different and the flu can affect people differently. We encourage everyone six months and older to get a flu shot every year.
An annual vaccine is the best way to reduce your risk of getting sick with seasonal flu and spreading it to others. How does it spread? The flu is contagious. You can spread it to others up to about six (6) feet away. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states most experts think flu viruses are spread by being in close contact with infected people. Most healthy adults can infect others beginning 1 day before symptoms develop and up to 5 to 7 days after becoming sick. To avoid spreading the flu to others, stay home if you are sick, wash your hands often with soap and water, and cough into your sleeve or elbow. What are the symptoms? How long does it take my body to develop protection?
It takes about two weeks after receiving the flu vaccine to develop the body’s protection to fight the illness. When and where can I get it? The Clinic at Public Health and Human Services (PHHS) (1.
