Did You Know?

  • Antibiotics treat only bacterial infections; they don’t work on viruses like the ones that cause colds or the flu.
  • When antibiotics aren’t needed, they won’t make patients feel better, and side effects could be harmful.
  • Healthcare providers can prevent infections and slow the spread of antibiotic resistance by advising patients to cover coughs, clean hands, stay home when sick, and get recommended vaccines.
