Preventing the flu. 

There are many things you can do to prevent getting sick from the flu:
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Keep sick kids home from daycare and school.
  • Wear a mask inside public places.
  • Ask others to wear a mask around children under 2 (who can't mask).
  • Wash hands frequently with soap and water.
  • Get your flu vaccine. 

Where to get a flu vaccine.

Most pharmacies are listed on the CDC's Flu Vaccine Finder. You can also ask your healthcare provider to get a flu shot or you can call the Washington County Health Care Resource line at 503-846-8851.
