Flu season has arrived and St. Elias is currently in the process of vaccinating it’s staff against the flu virus. Our Flu campaign this year is entitled, “Who will you protect?”.
Being safe from the flu is as simple as 1-2-3. First, make sure to get vaccinated. Second, take everyday preventative actions to protect yourself such as hand washing and covering your mouth when you sneeze. Third, if you feel sick, be sure to call you doctor. There are antiviral drugs that may reduce your symptoms or protect you from a long illness.
Last year, 85% of St. Elias employees chose to be vaccinated. Our staff is committed to keeping patients and their loved ones safe from the effects of the flu. For more information visit www.flu.gov
