Although receiving a flu shot is the best way to avoid contracting the disease there are other things Michigan citizens can do to limit their exposure to the illness, such as:

  • Wash hands frequently to avoid exposure to influenza;
  • Stay home from work or school if you are ill;
  • Get plenty of rest and eat a balanced diet to keep your immune system strong;
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick;
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing, and
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.

Historically, 36,000 people – most of them elderly – die from complications from influenza and more than 200,000 are hospitalized with influenza-like illness each year.
