Prevention of Infectious Disease

Prevention is the key to stopping the spread of many infectious diseases and sometimes can make the difference between life and death. Hand washing is the single most important means of preventing the spread of infection. Unfortunately, improper or infrequent hand washing continues to be a major factor in the spread of disease. Other important ways to prevent infection include following the appropriate immunization schedule and using precautions with pets.
