Protect Yourself From Getting the Flu

South Coast reminds you that each year, the flu claims the lives of around 12,000 people. To avoid the flu, get vaccinated. Call your doctor if you haven’t received your shot this year. Wash your hands often. If you’re older and can’t always get to water, use hand sanitizer. Exercise each day to boost your immune system and reduce your risk of getting the cold or flu by up to a third. Use disinfectant, especially in breeding grounds for germs like bathrooms, kitchens, doorknobs and light switches. Stay hydrated. Drink plenty of liquids and ask your doctor about what supplements to take to stay your healthiest. Avoid people who are sick and large crowds, especially in poorly-ventilated areas like stores and shopping malls. We want you to stay healthy. For more helpful tips, visit us at
