With the cold and flu season quickly approaching, Kleenex brand wants you to be prepared and protected.
Wouldn’t you love to be able to predict if the cold or flu was in the area that you live and how soon it might affect you? Well now you can. Kleenex has a new way to do this called achoo. You simply go to the website and enter your zip code and also answer a simple question if any member of your household is sick and it will determine your chance of how quickly you might become sick as well.
achoo by Kleenex is the cold and flu predictor. It is the first and only tool that can actually predict when cold and flu will reach area.
I entered the zip code where I work since this is
where I am most of the time and interact with many people everyday.
I am glad to see that at the moment the area I chose has low risk of getting a cold or the flu.
Staying healthy is very important for me since it doesn’t just affect me
but those with whom I work with as well as my family.
The next step on achoo also lets you know of ways to prevent sickness and even how many boxes of tissues that you mind need in the home based on the size of your family. What’s even better is that the site gives you a listing of the nearest pharmacy that you can use to stock up of tissues and even get vaccinated from the flu. For the average family size of 4 they will need to purchase about 20 boxes of tissues from fall to spring. I know one thing we all don’t like to mention is mucus color. Obviously clear is the best but change in color can indicate sickness as well. No matter the color, colds can be contagious.
What do you do to prevent sickness? How quickly will the area you live in become affected by cold or flu symptoms?
Check out Ali Wentworth’s video while she was visiting Chicago to help spread the word about the importance of cold and flu preparation.
Do you have any embarrassing moments where you were caught without a Kleenex tissue? What did you do?
