Bad Weather and The Flu...


It has been raining heavy lately and most of the time I come home from work dripping wet! The rain is like teasing everybody because at first you'd thought that it has stopped and then it pours hard every now and then. You really should be prepared with an umbrella everytime you go out of the house!


Just recently, all of us employees at work were given free shots of flu vaccine since the Influenza A (H1n1) has been confirmed as evident in the Philippines since last month. I'm glad that our company has taken this step and that it saved us from spending money for the vaccine. I still get paranoid though if one of my colleagues at work keeps sneezing or has a flu. As what I've heard in the news, the famous influenza has a possibility to cause an outbreak and might be harder to cure.


The bad weather here in the Philippines lately adds up to the possibility of one getting the flu.


Here are some preventive steps to fight the flu:


1. Get a flu vaccine.

2. As much as possible, take the necessary vitamins to strengthen the immune system.

3. Wash hands often with soap and water or bring along with you alcohol and hand sanitizers.

4. Avoid close contact with sick people. Don't go to crowded places as much as possible.

5. More importantly, drink plenty of water.


Prevention is still better than cure! God bless everyone!!!

My 3 children got flu. I did too. Now, we're OK after taking some antibiotics. Are we spared from swine flu now? Just asking, hehehe...

Even if you had your shots of flu vaccine, it does not guarantee that you will not catch the A(H1N1). The flu vaccine available in the market right now is for your ordinary flu only. The A(H1N1) is a different strain of virus.

Seek No More
