Top Tips for Flu Prevention

It’s never possible to predict what the flu season will look like in advance. We know that the flu spreads every year, but the timing, severity, and length of the season vary from one year to another. One thing that does stay the same, however, is the ways to stay healthy.

In this recent podcast, Dr. Dominique IsaacFamily Medicine physician at ARC Anderson Mill, shared several tips for staying healthy during flu season. She says, “Wash your hands frequently, cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze, stay home when you’re ill, and get a flu shot.” Who should get the flu vaccine? Dr. Isaac says, “Flu shots are recommended for children over 6 months of age and adults.”

If you are ready to get your flu shot, they will be available at all ARC locations. Check the schedule here.
