Do I need a flu shot?
Getting vaccinated is the best way to prevent getting the flu and protect those around you. Call your doctor or use this helpful link to find a location close to you to get vaccinated. If you need a primary care physician, visit our Huntington Health Physicians group website.
Other precautions include washing your hands often with soap and water; avoiding touching your eyes, nose and mouth; and avoiding contact with sick people.
If you become sick, stay home from work and school to avoid infecting others. As long as you have symptoms, you’re considered contagious. You should minimize contact with other people until your symptoms are completely gone. Children may be contagious longer than adults. Check with your doctor regarding your symptoms and whether you might benefit from any prescription medication. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends you stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone, except to receive medical care or for other necessities. And always cover your cough/sneeze with a tissue, then dispose of it and wash your hands.
Most cases of seasonal flu will get better on their own without treatment. Those who are most vulnerable to complications from the flu include those with underlying health issues, compromised immune systems, the elderly and the very young.
If you or someone in your family experience any of the following warning signs, seek medical care right away:
- Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
- Pain or pressure in the chest or abdomen
- Sudden dizziness or confusion
- Severe or persistent vomiting
- Persistent fever
In children, emergency warning signs include:
- Fast breathing or difficulty breathing
- Bluish skin color
- Not drinking enough fluids
