"Public health officials continue to emphasize that the single best way to protect against flu and its consequences is to get the flu vaccine. Many local county health departments, pharmacies and health care providers still have vaccine and health officials urge all persons 6 months of age and older to get the vaccine to protect themselves and those around them from influenza, especially babies too young to receive a vaccination.
If you do become sick with flu symptoms, stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone except to get medical care or for other things you have to do and no one else can do for you. Your fever should be gone without the use of a fever-reducing medicine, such as acetaminophen. Remember to cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue and wash your hands often to keep from spreading flu to others.
Persons who already have the flu can spread it to others even before they feel sick. You may have the flu if you have some or all of these symptoms:
- Fever (although not everyone with flu will have a fever)
- Sore throat
- Runny or stuffy nose
- Body aches
Most people with the flu have mild illness and do not need medical care or antiviral drugs. If you get sick with flu symptoms, in most cases, you should stay home and avoid contact with other people except to get medical care."
