Don't Let the Flu Get
ut of Hand. Why there is much concern?
1. Children appear to have almost no immunity to H1N1 flu, which means it can spread rapidly in schools. 2. H1N1 is a new unpredictable strain of influenza - it could suddenly become much more severe or pervasive.
1. Get a flu shot. 2. Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. 3. Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it. 4. Try to avoid close contact with sick people. 5. Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread this way.
