Fight the Flu This Season with Shipt 

For many, the post-holiday season conjures images of relaxation, productivity, and a new year. Whether we’re focused on being more mindful or getting more done, there’s nothing like some quiet winter months to set us back on track. 

…until the flu hits. 

Between the fever, sneezing, coughing, and aches, up to 20 percent of Americans can contract the flu every year. And with peak flu season firmly in the months of December through February, it’s time to take precautions into our own hands. These are some ways fight the flu – all available via Shipt. 

Shipt me my mom

  • The best cure for a cold is having a loved one by your side. This month, get a chance to win a visit from mom – or dad, grandma, aunt, or whoever cares for you when you need it most. We’ll cover travel and hotel accommodations – you enjoy the extra TLC. 

Forget the fever 

Try up & up Ibuprofen Pain Reliever & Fever Reducer Tablets to dodge our personal least favorite part of the flu. 

If your little ones are down for the count, we reach for Children’s Motrin Oral Suspension Dye-Free Fever Reduction & Pain Reliever. The Berry flavor is a hit with our kids. 

Combat that Cough 

Pick up a pack of Mucinex Expectorant and Cough Suppressant Tablets to get rid of that pesky cough (and spare your coworkers the concern). 

They’re famous for a reason — Vicks DayQuil & NyQuil Severe Cold & Flu Relief Liquicaps are a go-to grab for the cough that just won’t quit. 

Stay Sneeze-Free 

If you feel an achoo coming on, reach for Puffs Plus Lotion Facial Tissue or Kleenex Ultra Soft Facial Tissues — both are soft and provide extra moisture for around your nose. 

Prioritize Prevention 

To keep your kiddos safe (when everyone around them is fighting the flu), check out Zarbee’s Naturals Children’s Elderberry Immune Support Gummies — they’re full of vitamins and minerals that can help boost the immune system. 

If you’re into more homeopathic remedies, we like Boiron Oscillococcinum Flu-Like Symptoms Homeopathic Medicine Quick-Dissolving Pellets. Grab one next time you’re feeling a little worse for wear and they might perk you up. 

Until then, stock up — and we wish you and yours a speedy recovery! 

**Note – consult a medical doctor before using these products.
