The flu and you
Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula recommends that community members protect themselves against the flu by getting vaccinated. In addition, take these measures to protect yourself and others:
- Wash your hands
- If you do get ill, limit exposures to others – stay home
- Cough into your elbow
In addition, community members with flu or cold symptoms are asked to avoid visiting the hospital until they are well, to protect patients, other visitors, and our staff.
For more information about the flu, visit the CDC website or see our press release.
Don’t “friend” the flu.
We at Community Hospital believe flu vaccinations protect our patients, our community, and our families. In the 2016/2017 flu season, 94% of our employees were vaccinated. Employees unable to receive the vaccine wear masks when directly caring for patients.
