  •  Cough in to your sleeve or a tissue.
  •  Get immunized, and make sure your immunizations are up to date.
  •  Stay home when you feel sick.
  •  Don’t smoke indoors or near babies.

For more information on your immunization status, please see your health care provider at the local health centre, or public health.
