The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) offers good information and serves as a valuable resource. For up-to-date statistics and answers to questions such as "What should I do to keep from getting the flu?" visit the CDC Web site: http://www.cdc.gov/flu/.
The CDC has several recommendations: First, wash your hands. Also, try to stay in good general health. Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food. Try not to touch surfaces that may be contaminated with the flu virus. Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

In addition, the Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) Web site serves as a great resource for alerts, releases and information. Visit www.adph.org/news for the latest releases.
