STAY HEALTHY DURING COLD, FLU AND VIRUS SEASON

Obviously, no one wants to be under the weather, but it’s important to remember that what might be slight cold might lead to hospitalization or worse for someone with a chronic condition like diabetes or high blood pressure. To protect yourself, your loved ones and all people around you, it’s crucial that we do what we must to take steps to stop the spread of germs.
Luckily, the most effective strategies are simple and stressless! Read on to see the best steps that you can take to ensure your health and that of others during this year’s cold and flu season.

GET VACCINATED

The best way to protect yourself against the flu and COVID-19 is by getting both annual seasonal flu vaccine and a COVID-19 vaccine. Despite varying opinions, vaccines are proven to dramatically cut your risk of getting the flu or COVID-19 and make hospitalizations highly unlikely if you were to catch either virus.
