Arm Yourself Against Illness

Prepare for cold and flu season by protecting yourself and others as best you can.  Get a flu shot, wash your hands often, and always cough or sneeze into a tissue or your elbow.  Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth, especially if your hands aren’t clean.  Also, exercise, eat well, and get enough rest:  all help your immune system better fight off illness.

We put your family’s health and well being first.
