Welcome to Mid Coast Hospital Wellness

Five Tips for avoiding the flu.

  1. Get a flu shot early in the season.

  2. Wash your hands often with either traditional soap and warm water or an alochol rub product.

  3. Cover sneezes and coughs. Sneeze into the arm of your clothing (check out the video at http://www.midcoasthealth.com/flu/). Teach your children "Cough Etiquette."

  4. Stay away from others with the flu as much as possible. (Wash your hands immediately if you come in contact with someone who is sick.)

  5. Get outdoors. (In the winter, central heating dries you out making your body more vulnerable to the cold and flu bugs. You are more vulnerable to germs when you stay in confined areas where more germs circulate. And if you get some exercise outside, that boosts the body's natural ability to fight disease.)
