It's flu season in Massachusetts with an increase in confirmed flu cases. Fight the flu by being smart and preventing its spread.

If you or loved one are experiencing flu-like symptoms, talk to or visit with your primary care physician. If you need help finding a primary care physician, call 855-UMASS-MD (855-862-7763).

The most common symptoms are: cough or sore throat, and may also include body aches, headache, chills, runny nose and feeling very tired.

Fight the flu through prevention and early treatment.
