International Infection Prevention Week highlights immunizations
This week, October 18-24, is International Infection Prevention Week. This time of year in particular, an ounce of prevention goes a long way.
We are on the cusp of Flu season and according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), an annual flu shot is the best way to prevent spreading the infection and creating an epidemic. Well that and washing your hands which we didn’t need research to discover.
There are countless studies that counteract the common myths that flu immunizations get you sick upon vaccination, don’t stop you from getting the flu and are generally a waste of time.
We at Get Real Health are true proponents of preventative care. As such, we designed InstantPHR so clients can receive relevant, timely information– such as flu shot facts—through the product’s customized RSS feeds.
We believe education is key to a healthy lifestyle for both the well and those with specific conditions. In practical terms that means not only reading up-to-the-minute studies and findings, but also learning about your body and mind through the health trackers built into our product.
Get Real Health joins the medical profession in promoting immunizations as a means of stopping the spread of disease from infancy through adulthood.
