It’s Not Too LateTo Vaccinate
Every season, flu causes millions of illnesses, hundreds of thousands of hospitalizations and thousands and some times tens of thousands of deaths. Even healthy people can get sick from the flu.
Flu vaccination can reduce flu illnesses, doctors’visits, and missed work and school due to flu, as well as prevent flu-related hospitalizations and deaths.
In addition to getting a flu shot, IDPH recommends following the 3 C’s: clean, cover, and contain.
Clean– frequently wash your hands with soap and warm water.
Cover – cover your cough and
Contain– contain your germs by staying home if you are sick.
Influenza antiviral drugs can be a second line of defense for treatment of some who get sick with flu and can lessen the duration and severity of symptoms.
We still have some of the High Dose Flu Vaccine available for those over the age of 65.
