Although young people tend to be
perceived as "young and healthy," they are not immune to getting
influenza. The flu is a viral respiratory infection that can cause a
more severe illness than that of the common cold. Symptoms of the
flu include coughing, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, fever,
headaches, body aches, chills, and fatigue.
Fortunately, the flu and its unpleasant effects can be avoided by
getting the flu shot, practicing healthy hygiene, getting adequate
sleep, avoiding contact with those who are sick and taking care of
yourself if you become ill.
The Logan County Department of Public
Health encourages the practice of the three C's:
cough and sneeze with a tissue, or use your elbow.
germs by staying home if you are sick.
