SEASONAL FLU VACCINE

NOTE: Your own doctor may be your best option for getting seasonal flu vaccine. Many health care providers have received supplies of seasonal flu vaccine, while other providers are still waiting to receive their vaccines. Providers will continue to receive vaccines in the coming weeks, and vaccination for seasonal flu will continue through November and December, in time to provide protection against the seasonal flu.

Novel H1N1 Flu & Seasonal Flu: Differences and Similarities

News from Health posted on Wed, 09/23/2009 - 10:56am

Many people are wondering what the differences are between seasonal flu and novel H1N1 flu (Swine Flu). Novel H1N1 flu is caused by a new virus that is different from the seasonal flu we usually see each fall and winter. The virus that causes the seasonal flu changes a little bit each year, but the changes are small and people have some resistance to the virus. This year, the flu virus that is spreading is new and different enough so that many people, especially younger people, do not have much resistance.

Preventing flu and other illnesses

Good Health Habits for Prevention

Flu & other illnesses may be prevented by following these simple guidelines:

  • Avoid close contact

    Avoid close contact with people who are sick. When you are sick, keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick too.

  • Stay home when you are sick.

    If possible, stay home from work, school, and errands when you are sick. You will help prevent others from catching your illness.
