WakeMed Emergency Departments and Primary Care practices are definitely starting to see an increase in flu and flu-like illnesses in the past couple of weeks.  But, the good news is that it is not too late to get a flu shot.

In addition to getting your flu shot, follow these guidelines to increase your chances of staying well this flu season.

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Wash your hands frequently with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds.
  •  Boost your immune system by eating a well balanced diet, exercising regularly, managing stress and getting enough rest – even of the holidays.
