The Office of Social Work informs employees and students about anti-catarrhal diseases measures in autumn. To avoid illness, it is very important to follow the simplest rules in order to stay in shape.
During the period of higher incidence of ARVI and flu, you should wash your hands with soap more often and use antiseptics, air the room more often at work or at home and carry out wet cleaning, as well as sleep more and rest.
Also, it is very significant to include in your diet as many vegetables and fruit as possible, since they contain a huge amount of vitamins during this period. The most important vitamins are those that strengthen our immune system (vitamins C, E, A and B vitamins).
It is necessary to consume enough water and other drinks, take daily walks in the fresh air, and avoid visiting crowded places.
If you notice the symptoms of the cold (fever, headache, sore throat, running nose, cough, etc.), it is important to stay at home and call the doctor.
Nowadays, one of the most effective ways to protect against the cold and strengthen immunity is timely vaccination. The optimal period of immunisation is before the beginning of the epidemic season (September-November).
We remind you that employees and students of Saratov University can get free vaccination against COVID-19 and influenza at the SSU Health Centre located in Bldg. VII at 120 Bolshaya Kazachya str., 1st floor. Its opening hours are 9 a.m.-3 p.m.
