Protect Yourself from the Triple Threat: RSV, Flu, and COVID-19

Stay healthy this season with these CDC-recommended tips to shield yourself from the circulating respiratory viruses: RSV, Flu, and COVID-19.

1. Vaccination is Key:

•   Flu: Get vaccinated yearly, ideally before the end of October.

•   COVID-19: Stay up-to-date with your recommended doses and boosters.

•    RSV: While currently no vaccine is available for the general public, pregnant women can receive a vaccine during their 3rd trimester to protect their newborns. Infants at high risk may also receive an RSV immunization.

2. Mask Up When Necessary: Wear a high-quality mask, like an N95 or KN95 respirator, in crowded indoor settings or when interacting with vulnerable individuals.

3. Hygiene Habits: A. Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. B. Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands. C. Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your elbow.

4. Stay Home When Sick: If you’re feeling unwell, avoid close contact with others and stay home until you recover.

5. Practice Social Distancing: Maintain a safe distance from others, especially in crowded spaces.

Bonus Tip: Get enough sleep, eat a healthy diet, and manage stress to boost your immune system’s natural defenses.

By following these simple steps, you can significantly reduce your risk of contracting RSV, Flu, and COVID-

19. Remember, protecting yourself also protects your loved ones and the community. Let’s all work together to stay healthy this season!
