This season protect yourself and your family from the flu. How? Get a flu shot. Here is a place where you can get one at no cost to you:

It is also important to learn more about the flu, because there are many myths about what cures the flu. 

For example, many people believe antibiotics will fight this virus. They don’t. In fact, antibiotics are useless against the flu and even colds. Proven forms of prevention include getting a flu shot from your Doctor and washing your hands often.

Remember, if you have the flu but can’t reach your Doctor, call the IEHP 24-Hour Nurse Advice Line to get the help you need.
