The dreadful cold and flu season has begun. In fact, I believe a nasty little virus has already hit our house. Bryce and I both have the sniffles and coughs, and thank goodness that is all it is. I have never had the full blown flu, and I certainly don't want to get it.
So how can we keep our families flu-free this year? Lysol presents Staying Flu-Free can be as easy as 1-2-3, with these 3 tips:
- Get a flu shot (as the CDC recommends)
- Wash your hands with soap and water. Scrub thoroughly for 20 seconds
- Routinely clean and disinfect surfaces
Lysol has created the Great American Flu Shot Challenge that could reward you for helping to spread awareness of the importance of getting a flu shot. Create a flu-free network with your Facebook friends, and you could win cash prizes! Join the challenge to learn about how to receive a $5 rebate on your flu shot, and share the Flu Fighter Badge with your digital friends and family. The person who has the most friends in their flu-free network by December 15th, could win a $1,500 grand prize, $1,000 2nd place prize or $500 3rd place prize.
Questions? Raise your hands! Lysol knows that we all have questions about how to keep our families flu free, so they are offering a free expert live chat with Dr. Jana, an Omaha-based pediatrician. Tune in next Thursday, Nov. 17th @ 2pm CST/3pm EST to ask Dr. Jana questions on keeping your family healthy during cold & flu Season and get answers live.
