Seasonal Flu

Seasonal influenza, also called flu, is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses. It can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death. The best way to prevent the flu is with a flu vaccination each fall. October and November is the best time, but getting a flu vaccine in December or even later can still be beneficial since most influenza activity occurs in January or later.

Besides vaccinations your employees can do to other things to keep from spreading the flu. Download the following posters for your workplace.
