Planning for Your Family’s Basic Health Needs

November 15, 2012

Sick days may cause you to fall behind and come with a financial cost at the same time. If you have children, you want to make sure that they are able to learn without worrying about having them fall behind the rest of their class. Having the flu is something that will cause you to miss work or your kids to be absent from school for a period of time. Getting a flu vaccine is something that you can do today in order to protect your family’s health over the next year.

While you may assume that it is possible to protect you family against seasonal diseases without preventive medications, this is simply not true. Giving them their regular dose of immunization can make a huge difference, especially when their daily routine requires coming into contact with germs is something that would be very difficult to avoid.

Take the seasonal flu as an example. Simply deciding that a flu vaccine would protect you may be the key to keeping yourself and your family healthy and safe this season. Not doing so may cause you to spend your time resting in bed than making the most out of your day. This is because such illness can give you feelings of fatigue and fever for long periods of time. If you are not protecting against the flu by having a vaccine, you are taking a risk when it comes to your health.

The best way to prevent yourself from having to deal with this would be to get right immunizations as regularly as possible. No matter how careful you are when it comes to sickness-causing bacteria, you will not be able to ensure that you are not become a victim.

Remember that prevention is always better than cure. Once you have accustomed yourself to this health routine, you will never have to worry about subjecting your family to expensive medical bills in the future, or missing out on quality time with your family.

  1. I have 3 kids ages 6, 3 and 8 months and its a good thing our company offers flu vaccines for discounted rates also health cards for dependents that’s why I never hesitate to have my kids checked by their pedia just to make sure there’s nothing serious about them having fever

  2. Immunizations can get a little expensive that’s why a lot of families don’t include it in their budget. But you’re right, it’s better to spend on those now, than to spend huge hospital bills in the future!:)

  3. An ounce of prevention is certainly worth more than a pound of cure. Caring for our family’s health should always be a priority for us moms. It’s the ultimate expression of love.

  4. this is a very good article to keep in mind, however, my children can’t get a flu vaccine yet due to their young ages. However, doing other things to make them healthier is still in my plate, thinking of giving them more Vitamin C and D i guess and maybe supplemental vitamins…thanks for sharing this thought mommy!

  5. The last time I was undergo immunization was when I was a kid, my mom enrolled me for vaccination sessions for Hepatitis A.
