Learn how you can keep yourself from getting sick.
Staying healthy during cold & flu season is similar to how you can prevent illness during the coronavirus outbreak. There are a few tricks you can use to stay healthy — and most of them start with taking care of your immune system.
Get the Flu Vaccine
You’ve heard it a lot, but the flu vaccine really does work. While it doesn’t always perfectly nail the virus, it often helps to soften the impact of the illness so that the body can attack and wipe out the flu much more quickly than it otherwise would have. While some people have a mild reaction to the vaccine, you can’t get the flu from the flu vaccine. And don’t let anyone tell you they had the flu and it wasn’t that bad. The flu puts more than 200,000 Americans in the hospital and kills thousands of those people every year. If I wasn’t that bad, it wasn’t the flu.
