Get Ready for 2011-2012 Flu Season

It’s getting close to that time of year again – it’s the Flu Season! The days and nights are getting colder and the flu vaccine is already available in local stores such as CVS and Walgreens. The CDC (U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) is strongly encouraging people to get the flu vaccine this year, as the previous year’s vaccination may not be strong enough to hold into 2012 and provide protection for you or your family.

The government suggests that everybody in the age group of 6 months old or older should be vaccinated this year. For those children of ages 6 months to 8 years, a total of 2 shots will be required unless a vaccination was performed last year.

While the vaccine helps prevent the flu, it is also very important to take steps to strengthen your immune system. For example, products like the Airborne Formula offer a nice boost to an immune system by providing vitamins through their health formula. Additionally, eating healthy fruits and vegetables and exercising daily is sure to help strengthen your body.

If you are a fan of tea or coffee, be sure to drink teas that are high in antioxidants (green tea, for an example) and drink it frequently, especially during cold nights. By following these simple steps into the 2011-2012 flu season, you will be prepared. Most definitely though, if you have any concerns or questions, reach out to your primary physician to get the advice you need, especially if you have any existing conditions that may interfere with the flu vaccination or other products you may be considering.
