Winter brings shorter days, weather-related hazards, and… cold and flu season!

Influenza prevention is not all about getting immunized – it starts with you. Take care of yourself so you can take care of others.

How to stay healthy in the winter?

Stay hydrated, eat regularly, get enough sleep, and take breaks to maintain your health and wellness. Hand hygiene, proper cough etiquette, and staying home when you’re ill also helps prevent the spread of infection.
