It’s not only the holiday season, but it is also winter-germ season. So, as we approach the hustle and bustle of this time of year, it is important for us to remember the preventive measures we can take to reduce the spread of illness-causing germs as well as our risk of becoming ill.

This week marks National Influenza Vaccination Week, which is an annual observance that was established to highlight the importance of continuing influenza vaccination. It also serves as an important reminder for all of us to fight the flu by taking the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)’s “Take 3” Approach, which is detailed below:1

  • Take the time to get the flu vaccine as soon as it is available in your community,
  • Stop the spread of germs with everyday preventive actions, like practicing good hand hygiene, and
  • Take flu antiviral drugs if your doctor prescribes them.

This blog post from the CDC helps you prepare for this winter-germ season and explains that one way to fight the flu is to get a flu vaccine.
