Flu and Pneumonia
Protect Yourself and Others From the Flu
Getting the flu vaccine is the best way to protect yourself and others from the flu. Flu vaccination is recommended for all people age 6
months and older.
Flu vaccine is available at more locations than ever before, with many convenient options for Onondaga County residents. Call your doctor today to make an
appointment, or check the Flu Vaccine Finder below to see if there are any flu clinics scheduled at retail locations near you.
In addition to getting the flu vaccine, take extra hygiene precautions to protect yourself and others from the flu: wash your hands often
with warm water and soap; cover your nose and mouth with a tissue or your arm when you sneeze or cough; and avoid close contact with
anyone who is sick. If you get sick with the flu, stay home and away from others for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone.
