The winter typically brings many unwanted symptoms such as asthma attacks, influenza and many other illnesses. I recommend staying proactive and following some practical tips such as:
- Get a flu shot. Most people get a flu shot at this time of the year. This helps protect you from getting the flu. Our inactivated flu shots will not get you sick, as the vaccine is not a live virus.
- Wash your hands frequently. This helps keep viruses from getting into your body when you touch your eyes, nose, or mouth.
- Stay away from people who are ill. If a coworker or friend has the cold or flu, keep your distance. Employers usually recommend staying home if you have a fever.
As always, I wish you well and good health!!!
