How to prevent, detect and treat the Flu...A Primer

Here is a the first installment of a brief series about the Flu that I hope will help you.



  • Get Vaccinated now!..Takes two weeks to get your immunity up to speed after your shot.
  • Wash your hands frequently, luke warm water, one minute each and get under the nails!
  • Use hand sanitizer frequently.
  • Don't rub eyes. That is a good way to get the virus if on your hands into your system. You can wear sunglasses all the time if you have an issue with this
  • If you have to sneeze, do not sneeze in your hands, sneeze into a hanky or elbow and above all , please do not sneeze at other people unless they are very irritating to you or your family (just kidding!)

 Look for more helpful hints in the coming days!!!
