Buckle up for a sniffly autumn
🦠 It's almost flu season! Cases usually start midfall, ramp up in the winter, and drop by late spring. Read up on this essential information to help keep you and your loved ones safe and healthy these next few months.

👀 Early symptoms to look out for. Whereas the common cold brews for a bit, the flu comes in hot and heavy. The biggest sign is sudden or extreme fatigue, like you've been "hit by a truck." After that, you may start to get body aches and chills, diarrhea, nausea, a sore throat, persistent dry cough, fever over 100.4˚F (38°C), or headache.

Unlike adults, kids might cry without tears, be unable to eat, have trouble peeing, or develop a fever with a rash. Knowing (and noticing!) these signs can help you avoid spreading it and treat it ASAP.

🆘 What to do if you get sick. Drink plenty of fluids, use over-the-counter meds like a decongestant or pain reliever, and isolate as much as possible. If you feel super sick or start to experience emergency symptoms or complications, seek immediate medical attention. You might also want to get tested for COVID-19 and the flu to be extra safe and know exactly what you have.

🛑 Prevention is key! The influenza virus spreads through saliva — think sneezes, coughs, and kisses — and can reach people and surfaces up to 6 feet away. If you're able to, consider getting a flu shot. Otherwise, try to avoid close contact with people who are sick, frequently wash your hands, and limit how often you touch your face.

Airborne Vitamin C Supplement with Zinc
Airborne Vitamin C Supplement with Zinc
As soon as I started sniffling as a teen, my mom would give me an orange glass of Airborne. Like magic, I'd kick whatever cold was brewing within a day or two. Its effects always felt like sorcery, but its formula is rooted in simple science-backed nutrients that support immunity, like vitamins A, C, E, and zinc. Next time you feel something coming on, I recommend dropping one of these tablets into 6 ounces of water to help give your immune system a boost.
