Stop the spread of cold and flu

The CDC recommends a yearly flu vaccine as the first and most important step in protecting against flu. In addition to getting the flu vaccine, here are some recommended safety precautions:

  • Avoid close contact with those who are sick and stay home if you are
  • Wear a mask when in public
  • Use your elbow to cover your mouth when you cough and sneeze
  • Wash hands thoroughly for 20-seconds and carry hand sanitizer with you to use frequently
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
  • Disinfect surfaces
  • Ensure you are maintaining a physical distance of 6ft in public spaces
  • Call your doctor if you experience symptoms such as fever, chills, cough, headache, muscle and body aches, nausea, shortness of breath, or sore throat.

Dr. Jose Arciniega, family medicine physician with Dignity Health Medical Network - Inland Empire, discusses why your whole family should have vaccines against the flu virus.
