With the kids back into school and the weather slipping back into fall, we know that flu season is coming. Here are some tips from DealDash to avoid the dreaded flu season.
It is that time of year again when everyone is prone to getting the flu. The flu is a worldwide epidemic that happens mostly during the winter time. Almost anyone can get the flu especially children and the elderly. It is important to be prepared for the flu season so you won’t have to deal with the illness that everyone dreads. Here are some tips that will help you prepare for the flu season, and keep up your health level in general, from DealDash.
Make Sure You Have Supplies
Before the flu season starts, you should stock up on the supplies that you need to prevent the flu such as hand sanitizer, hand soap, and tissues. It is also good to carry Lysol wipes around so you can clean off the surfaces that people may touch to get rid of the germs if they are ill. Having the right supplies will help make dealing with the flu season easier.
Wash Away the Germs
The flu can easily spread from one person to the other, so it is important to keep up with personal hygiene and to wash your hands. Washing your hands with some soap and warm water can kill a significant amount of germs. If you have young kids it is best to remind them to wash their hands after they use the restroom. Also, you and your family should all be sure to wash your hands before eating. You can also have your family carry around packs of hand sanitizer, so they will stay free of germs.
Get a Flu Vaccine
One of the easiest ways to prepare for the flu season is to get a flu vaccine. The flu vaccine can protect you against the normal strains of the flu. Catching the flu is different from having a cold because the flu virus can spread the day before the symptoms of the flu show up. That is why it is important to get your flu vaccine as soon as possible. Children should get their flu vaccine at their pediatrician’s office. Adults can get their vaccine at their doctor’s office, or many pharmacies also administer flu shots.
