Tips for Flu Relief 
and Prevention

Early recognition and treatment of respiratory flu symptoms can help you relieve the most bothersome symptoms. If you have the respiratory flu, health experts suggest:

Flu Relief Tips
  • Get plenty of bed rest.
  • Drink lots of fluids.
  • Keep the air moist.
Health experts recommend the flu vaccine for 
anyone over 65, or anyone with a chronic medical condition such as heart, lung or kidney disease.

If symptoms persist for several days or get worse, consult your doctor.
Flu Prevention Tips
  • Wash your hands frequently.
  • Avoid hand-to-eye and hand-to-nose 
    contact, especially after being in contact 
    with someone who has a cold.

You may have been told to "starve a fever and 
feed a cold," but this may not be the best way 
to get better. When suffering from a cold:

  • Wash your hands frequently.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth.
  • Avoid contact with those who have colds or flu.
  • Ask you doctor about a flu vaccine.
