It's the time of year to be excited about holiday gatherings! But if you have asthma, it's important to be careful. Cold weather and the season’s indoor social activities can mean more chances of sickness. Plus, your asthma can act up when you catch a cold or the flu. It's so it’s even more important to take good care of your health in the wintertime. Get back on the right track and connect with the care team by self enrolling, calling us at (410) 348-1905 or sending us an email. Here are some tips to keep yourself healthy this winter!

Get vaccinated

The flu shot is the best way to protect yourself from the flu. If you didn’t get your flu shot yet, make an appointment with your provider's office or pharmacy today!

Wash your hands

This simple habit can stop you from getting sick with a cold or the flu. Wash your hands with soap and water before you eat, after using the bathroom, and before you touch your face.

Follow your Asthma Action Plan

Following your Asthma Action Plan can help you manage or avoid your triggers and keep you in the holiday spirit. If you’re traveling, keep a copy of your plan with you so that your friends and family can know what to do in case of an emergency.
