Back to school season just started for us about two weeks ago and I’m already sick. It probably didn’t help that we were on a plane, rushing around to get everything for school done and just exhausted already from our last bit of summer vacation. But now that we are running around going from class to class, doing school work, and I’m here trying to motivate myself to work while having the worst head cold every. (I think all head colds are the worst). I have brain fog, dizziness, and just exhaustion in addition to the sniffles, cough and desire to sleep. So I’m so glad that I have CVS to help me overcome this illness and build up my strength to fight off the next one; while also keeping the kids healthier. They even sent me a box full of all kinds of vitamins and few tips on how to boost your immune system.
5 TIPS TO BOOST IMMUNE SYSTEM:
- It’s important to make sure all your vaccinations are up to date. Vaccines safely develop immunity to diseases and help the body fight infection.
- Be sure to get enough vitamin C and probiotics in your diet.
- Exercising regularly can help your immune system fight infection.
- Make sure you get a good amount of sleep. Studies show that well-rested people who get a flu shot developed stronger protection against the illness.
- Eat a good well rounded diet and don’t skip meals.
In addition to getting all the vitamins you need daily, you should make sure that all your vaccinations are up to date. Well you and your kids. The last time I checked on my vaccinations was before I traveled to the Dominican Republic. I had to get a hepatitis vaccination for the schedules travel. You can get your vaccinations for travel health services and many common communicable diseases including chicken pox, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, MMR, meningitis and more updated at a CVS Pharmacy or MinuteClinic location. Our closest CVS is located inside our Target which is so convenient. But we are lucky enough to have many CVS locations in our area. There are approximately 9,600 retail pharmacies and more than 1,100 walk-in medical clinics locations it’s more convenient than ever to get the vaccinations you need every day, evenings and weekends, and many with no appointment necessary. For a location nearest you, use the store locator feature on www.cvs.com/getvaccinated. Vaccination coverage is available under most health insurance plans. CVS Pharmacy and MinuteClinic accept more than 5,000 health plans for vaccinations. Your out-of-pocket cost, if any, will depend on your specific insurance plan.
