Say Boo to The Flu

Since posting earlier this week about MRSA, I personally learned more about the flu bug. And what I found is astounding.

Did you know the CDC recommends flu vaccinations for children 6 months to 18 years old?
Many people die every year from the flu. Many times you should get vaccinated if come in contact with the elderly or infants regularly so you don't give them the flu because it is often fatal for them. Here are some quick tips to help you out!
Quick Tips:
Sing & Scrub - Make sure kids wash their hands frequently with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds. That's the time it takes to sing the Happy Birthday song twice. That will clean off any germs that they may unknowingly pick up throughout the day and keep them from passing them on.
Do the Elbow Cough - Cough into elbows, not hands where it's more likely to spread bacteria and viruses through touch.
Disinfect Hot Spots - Disinfect the surfaces kids touch most frequently with disinfecting products.
Follow Good Health Guidelines - Eat right, exercise, and get plenty of sleep. That will help boost your immune system which is your body's way of fighting off the effects of colds and flu.
