Seven Spots Where it’s Easier to Catch the Flu

A PRIME Insurance Winter Health Special

Fever, sore throat, aches and pains…nobody wants to suffer from flu symptoms.

One of the best venues of preventing infection along with frequent hand washing is to avoid crowds. For many, that’s a tall order that is not possible. PRIME Insurance presents the ten most likely places to catch the flu.


  1. School, Day Care, After-Hours Club
    With kids interacting closely with each other for long periods of time within confined areas these places may breed flu outbreaks.

  2. University Dorm
    University and college dormitories present opportunity for the flu bug to pass around due to the closed environment shared by many students.

  3. Church, Mosque, Synagogue
    Places of worship not only provide time to congregate for public prayer, but also for social interaction.

  4. Nursing Home
    Aging facilities where many seniors live, eat and socialize together provide the same exposure as the above. Obviously, with the older and physically weaker population the health risks are greater.

  5. Indoor Shopping Mall
    Malls and department stores hold large amounts of people where the influenza bug can be passed around from one to another easily.

  6. Transportation System
    Airports and planes, subway trains, buses and other public means of transportation present opportunities of close contact with strangers who may spread the infectious bug from one to the other.

  7. Work Place
    Business offices along with the meetings, hand shaking and close contact that accompany them are perfect breeding ground for the spreading of the flu.

Although it is unrealistic for most to avoid public spaces, tactics, such as getting the flu shot, frequently washing hands and surfaces that are touched by others can help prevent the flu infection. Stay healthy!
