The flu is in full swing here in MA where it has recently been considered widespread. We wanted to give you some tips to preventing the flu this flu season.

First and foremost, we highly recommend receiving a flu shot. The flu vaccine is always your best source of protection against the seasonal flu

For extra protection or for the rare few who cannot receive a shot, take daily precautions. Avoid contact with those who are sick. Wash your hands with soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth. Clean and disinfect any surfaces that may have flu germs on it.

As always, if you do experience flu-like symptoms, visit a doctor. AFC Natick can easily diagnose and treat your flu-like symptoms and, if available, also provide you with the flu vaccine. We offer care with little to no wait time.
