Season Flu # 5- Prevention Is Key

Noone likes to be sick, especially with the flu virus.

Many of my patients ask me, "Doc, is there any way I can prevent getting sick this season?"

These are the tips I give them.

1) Get vaccinated
2) Wash your hands frequently
3) Cover your mouth when you sneeze or cough
4) Don't touch your eyes, nose or mouth without washing your hands.
4) If you feel sick, stay at home, get plenty of sleep and rest, and drink fluids.
