Avoid giving the gift of the flu this season!

December 23rd, 2014

Well, it's official!

Sun Life Family Health Center has had several confirmed cases this week, which has kick-started the flu season here in Pinal County.

The flu is characterized by a cough or a sore throat, a runny/stuffy nose, headaches or body aches, chills, fatigue, and sometimes a fever (100 degrees or higher). Children could also have symptoms of nausea, vomiting and/or diarrhea. 

 

But don't fret - there are ways to ensure that you or others you know aren't passing it on to coworkers, friends, and family this holiday season. Just remember this simple acronym: CHIRP!

C - Cover your mouth and nose

H - Have healthy hands (wash your hands often)

I - Isolate yourself (especially don't come to work sick!)

R - Reduce germs/disinfect doorknobs and surfaces

P - Prepare you and your family to get your flu shot.

If you suspect you or a loved one may have the flu, contact your Sun Life provider for an appointment.
