Learn the CDC's Tips to Being Antibiotics Aware

During U.S. Antibiotic Awareness Week and throughout the year, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) promotes Be Antibiotics Aware, an educational effort to raise awareness about the importance of safe antibiotic use. The Be Antibiotics Aware initiative educates the public about when antibiotics are needed, when they are not, how to take antibiotics appropriately, and potential side effects of antibiotics.

In order to prevent antibiotic resistance, the CDC encourages you to:

  1. Get the facts about antibiotics. Antibiotics do not work on viruses, such as those that cause colds, flu, bronchitis, or runny noses, even if the mucus is thick, yellow, or green. When antibiotics aren’t needed, they won’t help you, and the side effects could still hurt you.
  2. If you need antibiotics, take them exactly as prescribed. Talk with your doctor if you have any questions about your antibiotics.
  3. Do your best to stay healthy and keep others healthy by cleaning hands, covering coughs, staying home when sick, and getting recommended vaccines, such as the flu vaccine.
