The truth is that these are no laughing matter and we should all take them very seriously. We should all also not forget about other things that threaten our childrens health such as influenza, the common cold, not eating healthy or not getting enough exercise or sleep. These should not be taken lightly either. Though they are not as serious as Ebola or Entrovirus D68, they are more common and therefore more likely.
As a pediatrician, Dr. Bernardez suggests that everyone gets either the Flu shot or the Flumist inhalation spray. Orange Pediatric Care, P.C. carries the Flu vaccines which contain no preservatives. Though we are pediatrics, we can also give the influenza immunization to the parents of the children and keep the entire family safe.
My mom also suggests eating healthy and getting enough sleep also helps keeping our immune systems strong and along with some exercise and sunlight will help keep you from getting sick. Of course my mom isn't a doctor, but I believe it to be good advice anyway.
Below is an article on the Entrovirus D68 I have added a link from a medical information website, (you may have to copy and paste it into your browser), There is a lot of information on Ebola on the CDC's website.
