Flu season is still underway and it’s important to protect yourself and your loved ones.

Influenza (flu) is a highly contagious disease that can have severe health consequences, especially for vulnerable adults 65 and older, and those with chronic health conditions. Nationally, 50-70% of flu hospitalizations were in people over 65.

Flu shots are especially important for healthcare workers and caregivers of vulnerable adults. Not only will getting a flu shot help reduce the chance of catching the illness, but it will also help reduce the severity if it’s contracted. This PSA promotes easy actions to take to prevent the flu, including:

Hand washing with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
Avoiding touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
Covering your cough and sneeze with a tissue or your elbow.
And avoiding close contact with people who are sick.

Please help us share this important message that encourages people to protect our most vulnerable populations. More information is available at Lung.org/Fend-Off-Flu.
