This year more than ever, it is important for individuals to take their health seriously and protect themselves in any way possible. This includes increasing their hygiene practices, such as washing their hands more frequently, avoiding sharing drinking or food, and taking care of their bodies with good nutrition and hydration. While doing these things is always a good idea, especially during cold and flu season, this year the stakes are higher. With COVID-19 still spreading throughout our communities, the threat of getting more than one viral infection this year is real. For many people, healing from the flu or COVID-19 will not require any medical intervention, however, some people are at higher risk than others.
Protecting yourself from getting the respiratory disease known as influenza, can help lower your risk for developing both of these respiratory illnesses at the same time or close together. The CDC recommends everyone over the age of six months old, with very few exceptions, gets the flu shot this year to lower their chance of infection. At Wellspire Medical Group, we make it simple and convenient for you and your entire family to get the flu shot. It is important to get the vaccine now so that it is most effective during peak flu season. If you have not been vaccinated this year, schedule an appointment with Wellspire Medical Group in Humble, TX today.
