Patient Education Tool: Get Smart Posters for Appropriate Antibiotics Administration

The CDC provides a free, downloadable set of posters intended to raise awareness about appropriate antibiotic use for upper respiratory infections.

The four posters were designed as part of the federal agency's Get Smart campaign about appropriate antibiotic administration. The posters explain that antibiotics are not the best answer for a cold or flu. These full-color posters can be printed for use in physicians' offices, clinics and other healthcare facilities.

Download the Get Smart posters for use in your facility.
