Todo final de ano milhões de pessoas viajam para visitar parentes e amigos. Em antecipação dessa temporada agitada – com aeroportos movimentados e festas lotadas – o CDC lançou uma campanha chamada National Travelers’ Health Public Awareness Campaign, que tem por objetivo ajudar os viajantes a se preparar melhor e não adoecer durante as festas de final de ano.

O CDC sugere que você saiba quê fazer se ficar doente durante uma viagem e tome as seguintes medidas ao se preparar para viajar:

  • Viaje só se se sentir bem.
  • Lave as mãos frequentemente e leve um anti-séptico à base de álcool para usar quando não tiver fácil acesso à água morna e sabão.
  • Cubra sua boca ao tossir ou espirrar com um lenço de papel descartável ou a parte interna do braço, não com a mão.
  • Quando estiverem disponíveis, tome as duas vacinas da gripe – a vacina contra a gripe sazonal e a vacina contra a gripe H1N1. Isto é especialmente importante se você pertencer ao grupo de alto risco.
