Flu activity is unpredictable and varies from season to season. January tends to be the peak flu illness month in Texas. However, seasonal flu activity can begin as early as October and continue through late May, so it’s never too early or too late to roll up your sleeves for a flu shot.
Austin Public Health urges everyone to take these steps to protect your health and your family’s health and minimize the spread of flu:
Get an annual flu shot.
Wash your hands often.
Cover your coughs and sneezes. Cough or sneeze into your sleeve and not your hands.
Don’t touch your face with your hands -- avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth.
