Many people still have summer on their mind, but with fall right around the corner, it's never too soon to be thinking about the cooler weather - specifically, the germs that come with the changing of the seasons.
Without the proper precautionary measures, individuals can find themselves sick in bed as the weather changes as the flu becomes more widespread. In an effort to make sure as many people are vaccinated against common viruses as possible, Walgreens recently announced that it is offering its seasonal flu shot as of this month, according to the Associated Press.
Autumn may still seem like some time away, but medical experts are advocating for vaccinations after the 2009 H1N1 flu outbreak that sent many to the hospital. This year's flu shot can offer protection against the H1N1 flu, as well as the influenza B virus.
Individuals who want to breathe easier at home can also consider purchasing an air purifier. A HEPA filter can help remove bacteria from the atmosphere.
