In addition of taking the Seasonal flu shot it's also crucial that everyone follow through with different method of keep themselves from catching a flu. A reminder that some viruses and bacteria can live 2 hours and longer on surfaces like desks, door knobs and cafeteria tables.
- Wash your hands thouroughly with soap and warm water for about 15-20 seconds and while doing that you can either sing the ABC or the Happy Birthday song- very important to prevent germs from spreading
- cover your mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing- use tissue paper and throw it away and clean your hands after
- Gel sanitizers and hands wipes are very helpful in preventing germs
- Remind your children to practice healthy habits too, because germs spread, especially at school
I feel very paranoid now ever since the The Swine Flu has become an epidemic around the world. Now my next step is to take the H1N1 Shot, that I have to go to the doctor to get. Since I have a sickle cell it's important because I may be at greater risk of cathing the virus......... If you have not done so please do.... it will be for your own benefit....
