Get ‘the shot’ A flu shot can save you a lot of tissues – and, in some cases, even your life. Getting vaccinated can protect you and your family against the current strains of flu; if you’re considered high risk (pregnant, over 65, or if you have an underlying health issue like diabetes) then the flu shot is something you should consider. Ideally you should get it at the beginning of winter so you can build up immunity, but in practice you can have it done at any time during winter.

Check with your medical aid as some plans pay for the shot if you’re considered high risk. Clover Duo, formerly Danao has a new look and a new name but still has the same great taste. Plus it’s the only fortified dairy fruit mix in South Africa. Double the goodness, double the happiness Get handy While the flu shot can mean you spend less time at the doctor, it’s not a guarantee that you won’t get sick. The easiest way for germs to spread is via your hands – stop them from spreading by washing your hands with warm water and soap, several times a day.
To also keep germs at bay, use disinfectant wipes to clean items that you use often, like your phone and computer keyboard. Drink up Keep your immune system in tip-top shape by giving it a vitamin boost: sip on a drink like Clover Duo, which is packed with vitamins A, B, C, D and E. These vitamins play an integral role in helping your immune system fight off colds and flu – for example, vitamin C strengthens immunity, while vitamin A has anti-inflammatory properties. So, what better way to get your winter vitamin fix than in one tasty, dairy fruit mix? Have it every morning with your breakfast or as an afternoon snack.
