Brooksville, Florida — June 21, 2012

MCR American Pharmaceuticals believes the best way to avoid the flu is to get the flu shot. The flu shot helps your body build the defense it needs to protect you from the flu. It can prevent the flu from taking hold up to 90 percent of the time among healthy adults and children.

"The flu shot protects individuals for free, so there is no reason why people shouldn't get it," said owner of MCR American Pharmaceuticals, David Daniel Ambrose.

Next, the company recommends you wash your hands with soap and water thoroughly and often. Proper hand cleaning guards against and limits the spread of many illnesses. MCR American Pharmaceuticals explains that viruses can live on your hands for up to five minutes and they can live on hard surfaces, like telephones, counter tops, etc.

Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze. As well as avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth since the virus usually enters the body through the eyes, nose or mouth. Furthermore, MCR American Pharmaceuticals believes the best thing you can do if you are sick - is stay home.

"When you're not feeling well, the best thing you can do for your own health and the health of your co-workers is to stay home," David Ambrose said.

Lastly, the company recommends you eat well, exercise, and get enough rest. Keeping your immune system strong will lessen your chances of getting sick.
