The second way to protect yourself against the flu or cold is being prepared with supplies you might need if you do get sick. The last thing that you want is shopping for remedial supplies while being sick. Not only will that inhibit your recovery, but it might get other individuals sick. You need to stock up on these supplies: tissues, cough drops, cold remedies, and Vitamin C tablets. Other healthy and hydrating foods you should have in stock are: Gatorade, herbal tea, frozen vegetables, fruit-juice popsicles, crackers, and soda water.
If you have any questions regarding getting the flu vaccine, please consult your doctor!
