With colder weather comes more opportunity of contracting upper respiratory illnesses like head and chest colds, and the flu. Take a few simple steps to help lessen your chances of getting ill this fall.

  1. Your best bet to avoid getting the flu is to get a flu vaccine. The earlier in the season you get vaccinated the better protected you’ll be. New England Urgent Care offers flu shots at all its clinics. Get yours now!
  2. If you’re going to sneeze, cover your nose and mouth with a tissue to prevent the spread of germs. Don’t have a tissue? Use the crevasse of your arm where your elbow is.
  3. We can’t say it enough — wash your hands often! It’s simple and effective! (PS: Global Hand Washing Day is October 15th)
  4. If you’re sick, stay home — don’t bring your sickness to public spaces like school, the gym, the workplace or retail stores.
