Don’t share utensils, especially if you suspect that you or a family member is suffering from pneumonia or any respiratory disease.
Additionally, consider doing the laundry more often to reduce the spread of infection.
Consider getting pneumonia or flu vaccine
Nakakahawa ba ang pneumonia? Since the answer to this concern is generally yes, why not consider getting vaccinated?
Please note that while doctors recommend flu vaccine for everyone, not all of us need pneumonia vaccine. If you have an existing heart, kidney, or liver disease, the doctor will most likely advise you to get vaccinated against pneumonia. This step may not protect you from all types of pneumonia, but it might be able to protect you from life-threatening pneumonia complications.
