Protecting Our Community Through Immunizations In our community, immunizations play a critical role in keeping diseases from interfering with a healthy and productive lifestyle.  When children and adults receive immunizations, they are not only protecting themselves from becoming ill, but everyone around them.  It may seem of little significance, but by choosing to immunize (stopping the spread of serious diseases) […] Read the Full Story

Flu Clinic Hours Beginning October 4th, 2014

Flu Clinic

Seasons Pediatrics’ Flu Clinic will be available every Saturday beginning October 4th, and will run through November 22nd, between the hours of 9:00am and 2:00pm. To make an appointment, call (208) 356-0234.
 

That time of year we’ve come to affectionately embrace as Flu Season is right around the corner and we want you to be prepared. Adding to your Flu Season arsenal, here’s a list of additional things to consider:

1) Cover your nose

The average sneeze can travel 5 feet, and any flu germs can travel up to 150 feet. Help combat long distance infection by covering your nose. You might have heard the phrase, “Cough in your corner” (meaning the inside fold of your arm). This is good advice and should be an easy go-to when faced with sneezing. 

2) Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer

You might be interested to learn that most people only wash parts of their hands. Germs can stick anywhere! When washing your hands, make sure to cover them completely with soap or hand sanitizer, and allow it ten seconds to activate before taking it off.

As it relates to this point, Jefferson University Hospital put a fun video together to help send the message home:

3) Stay hydrated

Without water, your body functions more slowly. Your body needs water for regular cell and organ functions, and because everyone is different each person needs a varying amount of water. As a general rule, you should drink half your body weight in ounces of water. For example, if you weigh 140 lbs you would want to drink 70 ounces of water.

In Conclusion

There are a lot of things we can do to combat Flu Season, but one of the most proven and useful methods is to do all of these things. One can never be too careful, so be sure to cough in your corner, wash your hands thoroughly, drink lots of water, and (you guessed it!) schedule some time to get a flu shot for you and your family.
