Crockpot Cranberry Citrus Cinnamon Tea is one of the first things I make when someone in my family feels like they’re coming down with a cold. It’s a warm and soothing drink, especially with the addition of honey to comfort coughs and scratchy throats. Since it’s made in the crockpot, rather than one cup at a time, we can sip it throughout the day even when I’m the one not feeling well.
Not that I rely on a crockpot tea to keep us in good health throughout cold and flu season, mind you. I’m a firm believer in protecting my family against the flu by making sure we get our annual flu shots. The statistics alone are enough to convince me how vital a flu shot is!
Every year 1 in 5 people gets the flu, including otherwise healthy people. Over 300,000 people were hospitalized due to the flu during the 2015-2016 season alone, and flu-related deaths have been as high as 49,000 per year. That’s just not a risk I’m willing to take for my family or myself, so we get our shots without fail.
Did you know you can get your shots at Sam’s Club? You don’t even need an appointment — they take walk-ins. Since you’re going to be there stocking up on cold remedies so you can have them on hand, pop by the Sam’s Club Pharmacy and get your flu shot, too.
So, find a club near you and get immunized! While you’re there, pick up the ingredients for this Crockpot Cranberry Citrus Cinnamon tea! You don’t even have to feel poorly to enjoy it.
