Did you know...

You can protect yourself and the people around you against respiratory illness by taking simple steps.

  • When flu, RSV, and COVID-19 are circulating, take extra care to wash your hands frequently. When soap and water are not available, use hand sanitizer. Avoid crowded places to limit your exposure to illness.
  • If you do get sick, stay home. Cover coughs and sneezes, and continue to wash hands frequently. Seek medical care if your symptoms worsen or you are concerned about your health.

Annual vaccination can protect you from getting influenza (flu).

  • Older adults are at increased risk of severe complications from flu.
  • The flu vaccine is adjusted each year to provide protection for each year’s anticipated flu season. While each year’s vaccine varies in effectiveness, vaccination is the best way to prevent flu.
  • Flu shots do not cause flu illness and have an excellent safety record.
  • People 65 years and older should seek flu vaccines specifically designed to protect older adults. They contain an additional ingredient to cause a better immune response to the vaccine.
  • Locate a flu vaccine near you.

Antiviral treatments can treat flu illness.

  • People with flu who are at higher risk of serious flu complications, including older adults and people with underlying medical conditions, should seek antiviral treatment if they have or may have flu.
  • Antiviral drugs are different from antibiotics and are only effective against flu. Antibiotics are not effective against flu.
  • Flu antiviral treatments work best if they are in the early stages of illness. Talk with your healthcare provider if you may have flu to get medication promptly.

Vaccination continues to protect against current circulating variants of COVID-19.

  • Staying current with your COVID-19 vaccines and boosters can prevent severe illness, hospitalization and death.
  • CDC recommends that everyone age 6 months and older get the updated COVID-19 vaccine released in the fall of 2023.
  • To find COVID-19 vaccine locations near you, search, text your ZIP code to 438829, or call 1-800-232-0233.

Treatments are available if you test positive for COVID-19.

  • Medicines to treat COVID-19 are for people who are at risk of severe illness. People at high risk include people aged 65 and older, people who are obese or overweight, and people with certain medical conditions, including mental health conditions. You may need to adjust or pause other medications while taking medication to treat COVID-19.
  • Treatment works best if you begin medication within a few days of testing positive or feeling sick. Ask your healthcare provider about treatment as soon as you develop symptoms or test positive.
  • Test for COVID-19 to determine if treatment is appropriate.
  • If you do not have a healthcare provider, you can access treatment at a pharmacy through the Test to Treat program. Locate a Test to Treat site.
  • Create a COVID-19 testing and treatment plan so you are prepared. Create a plan in advance with your healthcare provider to make sure you get prompt treatment.

RSV vaccines are now available for older adults and infants.

  • RSV can be more dangerous for infants than older children and adults.
  • Monoclonal antibody treatment is now available for infants and some toddlers to prevent RSV infection. Speak with your child’s healthcare provider to learn more.
  • Two vaccines have been approved for adults age 60 and older. Speak with your health care provider to determine if an RSV vaccine is appropriate for you based on your medical history and risk for severe illness.
