Help prevent RSV disease

You want to make sure you do everything you can to help protect your infant from RSV disease. RSV disease is spread just as easily as the flu. Sneezing, coughing, and touching are all examples of ways RSV can put your infant at risk. Taking a few extra precautions around your family and friends can help protect your baby.

  • Wash your hands thoroughly before touching your baby, and ask others to do the same
  • Don't let anyone smoke in your home, or near your baby
  • Wash your baby's toys, clothes, and bedding often
  • Keep your baby away from:
    — Crowds and young children
    — People with colds

Remember, although there is no cure for RSV disease, there are prevention methods. Talk to your doctor to see how you can help protect your baby.
