Protect yourself and your loved ones from the flu

Protect yourself and your loved ones from the flu this winter season. Here are some tips on helping prevent its spread:
  • Get the flu shot
  • Wash your hands
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces or objects
  • Avoid close contact with others if you have flu-like symptoms
  • Stay home when you're sick
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you sneeze. Or, cough or sneeze into your elbow.
The flu vaccine is the best way to protect against the flu. Visit your family physician or a local pharmacy to get the flu vaccine. For a full list of locations, please visit www.ontario.ca/page/get-flu-shot.
