How to Stay Well During the Holiday Season

2 Dec

Get the flu shot: December and February are peak months for flu, so it’s not too late. Remember children under 6 months can’t receive the vaccine, but they can definitely get the flu. Washing your hands frequently also helps prevent the common cold.

Go outside: Colds come from viruses, not just being chilly. In fact, people often get colds in the winter because they’re inside with others who are coughing and sneezing. Get some fresh air to boost your overall health.

Create a fall-free zone: Pour sand on your driveway, and clean up after storms. There is a documented higher fall risk in colder seasons, and for older people especially falls can be deadly.
