Avoid Getting the Flu!

How to Help Avoid Getting Sick this Winter

This is the time of year where the weather gets colder, we spend lots of time indoors with friends and loved ones, and we want to avoid getting sick.  Although it can’t be guaranteed that you won’t pick something up, there are many things that you can do to reduce your risk of getting sick (or of passing something on to someone else).
The best way to avoid winter germs is with a flu shot, a healthy lifestyle and good personal hygiene. Colds and flus are caught in two main ways: From respiratory droplets spread from a cough or sneeze (droplets generally travel) and by touching contaminated surfaces such as door handles, taps, tissues and hands and then touching your mouth, nose or eyes. Flu viruses can survive on some hard surfaces for up to 2 days.
What works?
An annual flu vaccination is the most ­effective protection against influenza. It is best given in the fall, but can still be given during the winter months. The vaccine is especially important for high-risk groups such as people aged 65 and over, pregnant women and anyone with a chronic health disease such as diabetes, respiratory, or a heart problem.
Boosting your immune system helps your body fight germs. Eat a healthy diet with lots of fruit and vegies, reduce stress,  and get plenty of sleep and exercise.
Other proven strategies are:
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick as much as possible.
  • Wash your hands often in soap and water or use an alcohol-based hand gel, especially before eating and after contact with a sick person.
  • Avoid touching your nose, mouth or eyes with an unwashed hand.
  • Avoid sharing personal items, such as cups, cutlery, towels and toothbrushes.
  • A recent review showed that daily zinc lozenges or syrup help prevent colds in children, although zinc can cause nausea and a bad taste in the mouth and possible toxicity with long-term use.
  • A well-fitting face mask covering the nose and mouth helps protect against airborne viruses. They should be used only once and changed 2-3 times daily.
