How To Prevent Swine Flu

Everyone is wondering how to prevent swine flu.

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), there are very few cases of swine flu in the U.S. each year. There are documented cases of pigs passing the flu to humans and then humans passing the flu to other humans.

The flu is normally prevalent during the fall and winter season just as flu is for humans. It is normally passed to humans that are in close proximity to pigs either at a farm, county fair, petting zoo. The human that comes in contact with it can then pass it to other humans.

Wash your hands thoroughly if you have been in contact with farm animals at any location.

You should also use caution when coming in contact with anyone that has entered this country from another country in the last two weeks.

If we work together we can prevent swine flu.
