Becoming a Flu Exterminator

Take the Pledge


Its important for you and your entire family to receive a new flu vaccine each flu season. The flu shot you got for last flu season may not fully protect you for the upcoming months. Its good to know that every summer, a new vaccine is announced including new strains circulating. Some seasons the flu shot is more effective than others. Its important to note, some protection is better than no protection. This vaccine protects not just you, but everyone around you. Don't take the chance, and don't wait! It takes up to 2 weeks for the vaccine to take full affect in your body

Pledge to get your flu vaccination every flu season. 

 Wash your hands...

  • Wet your hands with clean, running water (warm or cold), turn off the tap, and apply soap.
  • Lather your hands by rubbing them together with the soap. Be sure to lather the backs of your hands, between your fingers, and under your nails.
  • Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds. Need a timer? Learn our Wash, Wash, Wash your hands song!
  • Rinse your hands well under clean, running water.
  • Be sure not to shut the water off with your germ free hands! Use a paper towel.
  • Dry your hands using a clean towel or air dry them. 

 Cover your cough and sneeze...

  • Use a Kleenex or paper towel to cover your sneeze or cough. 
  • Put used Kleenex or towel in the trashcan immediately. Avoid placing it on any surface.
  • Wash your hands! ( see above)

 Stay home...Recognizing when to not to send your child to school or when you stay home from work.

  • If you have a fever over 100 F you should stay home from work or school and not go back until your body temperature has been normal (usually 98.6 F) for 24 hours. If you need to take medication to get your temperature to be normal, that doesn’t count. You are still sick and likely infectious 
  • Coughing uncontrollably. Don’t go to work or school. Contact your doctor to see if you should get your cough checked out. 
  • Stay away from others until you are no longer vomiting and the doctor says that you are not contagious. Persistent vomiting will cause dehydration and weakness. 
  • A very loose or watery stool can often be a sign of infection. Remain near the bathroom and do not try to go to work or school until you are better. 
  •  If your child comes in contact with other children that are not vaccinated or have weakened immune systems, he/she may put them at risk. Wait until your doctor declares your child healthy enough to return to school. 


Be brave... Tell your friends and family how they too can help prevent the spread of flu.  Sharing this important information can save your life or someone around you's life.

Spread the Word, Not Germs!

Most contagious germs are spread at school. This means missed school days for your sick child and missed workdays for you, sick or not. Sneez alerts you to what’s circulating at your child’s school the second it starts. So you can take preventive measures and be on the lookout for symptoms, instead of in the dark. Knowledge is the best medicine and in this case it’s FREE. Want to stay one step ahead of what’s going around in your community? Use the Sneez app. Get smart, not sick.™
