Press Release: Safeguard Against Germs ~ Your Ultimate Flu Season Survival Guide

Rainy season is already here.  And with this season we are more prone to experience sickness such as colds and flu.  These sicknesses are being spread out by viruses and germs that the wet season brings.  This makes people more vulnerable to getting sick – especially kids.

During the rainy season, most people opt to stay indoors in the hopes of being safe from sickness.  However, staying indoors does not guarantee that you are safe from germs and the illnesses that go with it.  Are you aware that even the inside of our homes are germ infested? 

So as mommies, how do we keep everyone protected from getting sick?

Get Flu Vaccines.  While getting vaccinated doesn’t guarantee 100% that you won’t get sick, vaccines can help boost your protection against certain illnesses.  When the rainy season arrives, our family makes sure to get the flu vaccine. 

Eat Healthily.  The rainy season can take a toll on our body’s immune system.  Make sure you eat healthy.  Fruits and vegetables are known to boost the body’s immune system.  Make sure to include this in your diet.

Sleep More.  Lack of sleep can bring down your immune system.  Try to get at least 6 hours of sleep every night.  This will not only help build your immune system, it will also make you feel energized.

Clean Your Hands Often.  Clean hands can help you steer away from illnesses.  Proper hand washing has been a campaign of our health department for years as this will aid in lowering the number of people, especially kids, getting sick.  Use warm water and anti-bacterial soap that is known to provide protection against germs, like Safeguard.   Safeguard is equipped with GermShield+ technology which fights 3 types of germs namely Gram+ bacteria, Gram- bacteria, and fungi. 

We can encourage proper hand washing to our children using STEP.

Do remember that kids are the most vulnerable to viruses and germs during the rainy season.  Be sure to dress them appropriately, get them flu vaccinated, teach them the importance of eating healthily, make them sleep more, and focus on maintaining a good hygiene, especially washing their hands frequently.
