School is back, the temperature is cooling, and people are starting to get sick. If you haven’t gotten your flu shot yet, it’s time to do it! A quick vaccination will help you healthy and moving all season long.
A flu shot lowers the risk of children being admitted into the emergency room by 74%, according the CDC. Decreasing your chances of a hospital visit is not only good for your health, but also for your budget. Emergency room visits are expensive – much more than a one-time flu shot!
A flu shot is not the only way you can protect yourself from getting the flu. You can try to avoid contact with sick individuals, wash your hands, stay hydrated and exercise. Getting a lot of rest is another key to flu prevention. A well-rested body is a strong, healthy body.
If you or your child do start to feel sick, make sure you stay at home. Don’t spread it! Try not to go to many public areas, where you could pass on your germs to others.
