Holiday Health Tips with Dr. Bruckel

Most people associate the holidays with a time to share good food and happy memories with friends and family, but the holidays can also be a time where cold and flu germs are easily shared between people. Dr. Bruckel recently offered some tips to help fight the flu and stay healthy this holiday season on KSDK's "Today in Saint Louis".

Holiday Health Tips

  • Get your flu shot.
  • Always be sure to cover your cough and sneeze.
    • Try to use a tissue or napkin. If unavailable, use your hands rather than your elbow. Hands are easier to wash.
  • Wash your hands frequently.
  • Recognize your symptoms. Stay home if you are feeling unwell or if your fever has broken less then 24 hours ago.
