September always represents the back to school season, and this year, it carries a much bigger risk than expected. This year’s most talked about illness, the dreaded Swine Flu, is set to take over schools and campuses nationwide, unless we know wich ways to prevent it. So before your little ones pack up their backpacks (or cars if headed back to campus) here’s some easy tips to keep the swine flu from getting to you:
1. Get a Flu shot- The H1N1 vaccine will be come available as of this month to the public, so make sure you try and get it. Also the regular seasonal flu shot is also available so don’t be afraid to double up your defenses. It’s better safe than sorry.
The measures may seem like a matter of common sense, but they will definitely lessen your chances of getting the swine flu or possibly another illness. Have a safe and healthy school year!
