Hugs, kisses & handshakes.....'tis the season for spreading germs!

Make sure you are washing your hands frequently, or using hand sanitizer if you are unable to wash your hands. We have in stock the usual gel sanitizers such as Purell and its generic equivalents. We also have a new spray hand sanitizer. It is called Everyone Natural Spray and comes in a handy 2 ounce spray bottle that easily fits in your purse, briefcase, or backpack and comes in scents such as coconut + lemon, peppermint + citrus, and lavender + aloe. This brand has been very popular since it hit our shelves. We also carry lotion hand sanitizers that are not drying to the skin. The brands we carry are Germ Bloc and Gold Bond lotion sanitizer. Always try to avoid touching your face, eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands as germs love these points of entry into your system.

With flu season fast approaching, make sure you get a flu shot if you haven't already, and consider an immune boosting supplement. Emergen-C and Airborne are popular products that we carry. We are now also stocking Ortho Molecular's Viracid. Viracid includes a powerful combination of key nutrients and botanical extracts that provide immediate support for immune challenges. Viracid boosts immune defenses by providing nutrients such as L-lysine, vitamins A and C, pantothenic acid, B12 and zinc, as well as botanicals such as black elderberry, astragalus, echinacea and andrographis.   Black elderberry is the latest botanical to be found to help soothe throat irritations. We now carry the Therazinc brand of lozenges that contain elderberry. We have placed them by the cough drops in the cough and cold aisle.
As family and friends are gathering for the holidays, flu activity is increasing. Now is a great time to get a flu shot if you have not gotten vaccinated yet. A flu vaccine can protect you and your loved ones.

While seasonal flu activity varies, flu activity usually peaks between December and February, though activity can last as long as May. As long as flu activity is ongoing, it's not too late to get vaccinated. An annual flu vaccine is the best way to protect against this potentially serious disease.

Hopkins Center Drug will continue giving vaccinations throughout the flu season.
