How can a Zika virus infection be prevented?

There is no vaccine to prevent Zika virus infection. Infections can be prevented by avoiding mosquito bites.

-- Wear long-sleeved shirts, long pants and socks
-- Use insect repellent or permethrin-treated clothing (especially during the daytime when mosquitoes are active)
-- Use air conditioning or window/door screens to keep mosquitoes outside
-- Eliminate standing water from containers in yards (including bird baths, flower pots, buckets) to stop mosquito breeding

For more information about how Zika is spread, symptoms and more, visit the Virginia Department of Health website,, and the Centers for Disease Control website
