If you are managing a chronic condition—or are at risk for one—creating self-care habits that support a healthy lifestyle will keep your condition in check.
These four steps can go a long way toward maintaining your health.
Don’t forget your vaccines!
The CDC recommends annual flu shots for anyone six months or older. For people over 65, especially those with chronic conditions, a high-dose flu shot is recommended. A new COVID-19 booster is also available. Lastly, a new single-shot Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) vaccine is now available for adults 60 years or older. A trial of the RSV vaccine showed it was 83% effective in preventing a lower respiratory tract disease.
