Albany Med is Committed to Preventing the Flu

In response to the needs of our patients and community, we have created a dedicated section on our Website in order to share information that will help keep you and your family healthy this flu season.

 

Good Health Habits Can Help Stop the Spread of Flu


Help stop the spread of flu:

  • Receive a flu vaccination. This is the best way to protect against the flu.
  • Avoid close contact. Avoid close contact with people who are sick. When you are sick, keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick too.
  • Stay home when you are sick. If possible, stay home from work, school, and public places when you are sick. You will help prevent others from catching your illness.
  • Cover your mouth and nose. Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. It may prevent those around you from getting sick. Dispose of the tissue immediately.
  • Clean your hands. Washing your hands often will help protect you from germs.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs are often spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth.
  • Practice other good health habits. Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids and eat nutritious food.
