Know someone without access to a computer? Share an office with lots of coworkers? Spend time at a library or community center? Or simply want to keep your friends and family members informed? Print this flu information and share it!
New materials on Flu.gov provide information on how you can stay healthy this flu season and help others do the same. With so much information online and in the news about H1N1 and seasonal flu, it’s easy to be confused. These new one-page information sheets are personalized for people with different needs and provide simple tips that everyone needs to know this flu season.
