1. Prepare to combat cough and cold (and even the flu)





Your first line of defense against the flu is vaccination. Stroll over to your favorite Bartell Drugs location and get a flu shot today – along with a free band-aid!
In case you or your family members end up getting a cold, it’s a good idea to stock up on tissues, hand sanitizer and plenty of Ricola CherryHoney throat lozenges.

Continuing the theme of staying healthy, be sure to pack some Airborne in your carry-on, grab neck pillows for road-trip comfort and pick up some Wet Ones to clean up kid’s sticky fingers.
