H1N1 Flu Prevention Information
You can help prevent influenza sickness for you and your family by following the everyday actions show below, and by getting both your seasonal influenza and H1N1 Flu vaccination shots.
Although the 2009-2010 seasonal flu shot is not expected to protect against the H1N1 Flu virus, a seasonal flu shot is important because it can prevent the spread of other viruses that cause respiratory infections.
The H1N1 Flu vaccine is widely available in California. See Vaccine Information and Vaccination Locations for more information.
The symptoms of the H1N1 Flu are similar to the symptoms of seasonal flu and include fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue. Some people have reported diarrhea and vomiting associated with H1N1 influenza. If you are sick or think you may have H1N1 influenza, please contact your healthcare provider.
