Fever, chills, and muscle aches are symptoms we know all too well when contracting the flu. The flu’s impact can range from mild to critical, keeping those affected out of school, work, and at worst lead to death. The GW Medical Facility Associates Immediate and Primary Care is there to help with vaccination services and advice to help keep you protected during this flu season. This year the Centers for Disease Control classified the 2017-2018 influenza season as a high severity season, so help protect your family with these recommendations:
-Visit The GW Medical Facility Associates for a flu vaccination.
-Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.
-Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. After using a tissue, throw it in the trash and wash your hands.
-Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with germs like flu.
