Flu season is here, and it’s knocking people down left and right. Still haven’t been infected? Lucky you! Staying healthy and germ-free when everyone around you is sniffling, sneezing and coughing is a feat.
Continue your flu-free streak by boosting your immune system and disinfecting your environment so you can continue to ward off this wintertime illness. In the unfortunate event that you or someone else in your care does contract the bug, there are ways to cope and kick those flu symptoms to the curb.
How to avoid the flu
Get a flu shot
The flu vaccine won’t eliminate the flu once you’ve contracted it, but it will improve your immunity and let you hang around infected friends and family with a little more ease. It’s a must for anyone working in the health care field (doctors, nurses, other hospital and clinic staff) and for those who frequently interact with kids.
