Influenza, more commonly called the flu, is a highly contagious respiratory illness. Flu seasons can be unpredictable and severe. Hospitalizations and deaths related to flu occur every year in Snohomish County, yet less than half of all adults get vaccinated yearly as recommended.
Getting the flu vaccine and taking other illness prevention measures helps keep yourself and your loved ones healthy. It also is an important way to reduce the number of severe flu-related complications and help preserve capacity in our healthcare system.
Help keep yourself and your community healthy this year by:
- Getting your annual flu shot
- Staying home if you are ill
- Choosing to wear a mask over your nose and mouth in indoor public spaces when flu or other respiratory viruses are circulating at high rates
- Covering coughs and sneezes
- Washing your hands thoroughly with soap and water, and using hand sanitizer when soap and water isn't available
