The Public Health Agency of Canada advises how to protect yourself and others from the flu:

· Get your annual flu shot
· Wash your hands frequently with soap and warm water
· Keep your hands away from your face
· Cough and sneeze into your arm, not your hand
· If you get sick, stay home until your symptoms are gone
· Keep common surface areas clean and disinfected

The UPEI Student Health Centre has now completed distributing its supply of the flu shot, but for a list of available PEI Flu Shot Clinics, visit: www.healthpei.ca/fluclinics
