Why choose outdoor activities?
When you’re outside, fresh air is constantly moving, dispersing droplets. So you’re less likely to breathe in enough of the respiratory droplets containing the virus that causes COVID-19 to become infected if you haven’t had a COVID-19 vaccine. Being outside offers other benefits, too. It offers an emotional boost and can help you feel less tense, stressed, angry or depressed. And sunlight can also give your body vitamin D.
Use your Fedhealth screening benefit to have your health checked out
When April comes around, it’s time for Easter fun but also for getting your annual flu vaccination (FREE to all Fedhealth beneficiaries). Remember, as part of the Fedhealth screening benefit, you can also have important health risk assessments done to check things like your blood pressure, cholesterol levels and BMI.
