What causes the flu?
- Viral infection with Influenza A, B or C
- Exposure to a person with the flu
- Spreads when an infected person coughs or sneezes
- The influenza virus enters through the nose or mouth and spreads throughout the body
- Flu strains change from year to year which limits the vaccine's effectiveness
How can influenza be prevented?
- Annual flu vaccination is the most effective method for prevention, but it is not 100% protective
- Frequent hand washing
- Respiratory masks
- Antiviral medication can both prevent and treat an influenza infection
- Use of antiviral medications after exposure but BEFORE you have symptoms
What can I expect?
- Our online assessment will help identify good candidates for online flu prevention
- Taking Tamiflu® (oseltamivir) after being exposed to influenza A or B significantly reduces the chance of developing the flu
- Just answer a few questions to get started with your online visit
