As CDC Kicks Off National Influenza Vaccination Week, It Is More Important than Ever to Take Preventative Measures Against Cold & Flu
Date:12/7/2009

PARSIPPANY, N.J., Dec. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Today the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced the start of National Influenza Vaccination Week. While the week was designed to highlight the importance of flu vaccinations, it also brings to light the importance of taking additional steps to keep you and your family healthy during the peak cold and flu season of December, January and beyond.

"Avoid panic by planning ahead and talking to your family about what you all can do to protect yourselves from illness."

Dr. Jana recommends the following tips to keep healthy this winter:

  • Wash Hands Often and Properly - The CDC says hand washing is the most effective way to help stay healthy. Wash your hands frequently with soap and water ensuring all of the surfaces of the hands are cleaned. Once washed, dry your hands thoroughly with a clean dry towel. If soap and water are unavailable, use a hand sanitizer.
  • Disinfect to Protect - Help prevent the spread of illness-causing germs by disinfecting the surfaces that your family frequently touches. Use a trusted disinfectant brand that is proven to kill cold & flu viruses, including H1N1.
  • Cough and Sneeze Etiquette - Practice good cough and sneeze etiquette to prevent spreading germs to others. Cough into your elbow, rather than your hands, and sneeze into a tissue to minimize hand contact transmission of germs. Immediately throw away used tissues and wash your hands.
  • Stay Home if You are Sick - If you or a family member feels
