  • As flu outbreak numbers rise, the HSE says it's not too late to get your vaccine

According to this week's CDC FluView report, high influenza activity has been seen in 19 states plus New York City with two flu-associated pediatric deaths reported. "Flu activity can last until April or May and the flu vaccine is the best way to protect yourself and others around you from influenza". Lucas County now has 53 confirmed Influenza-related hospitalizations since October.

Get an annual flu vaccination.

For nearly everyone. The CDC recommends flu shots for anyone 6 months and older. "Flu shots are also recommended to those in high priority groups including senior citizens, pregnant women and chronically ill individuals".

Most people testing positive for the flu did not receive a vaccine this year, according to Piedmont Newnan officials. Even if you do get the flu, your symptoms are likely to be less severe if you've been vaccinated.

In 2009, Ontario was hit with a strain of swine flu commonly known as H1N1. Because these two types of illnesses have similar symptoms, it can be hard to tell the difference between them based on symptoms alone. Moreover, taking care of your general well-being by exercising, sleeping enough, and eating a balanced can strengthen the body against the flu. This results in approximately 200,000 hospitalizations and up to 49,000 deaths from related complications. The restrictions include no visitors with symptoms of influenza, no visitors under the age of 18, and visitors limited to immediate family as identified by the patient. "There is influenza virus circulating in all of our communities so if you haven't been vaccinated, you really should get with the program. Since returning from the break, we've had a few kids tell nurses that they had the flu during the break, but we don't have laboratory confirmation of that". Some flu symptoms can be confused with those that also come with a cold.

Regular hand washing, getting the flu shot, and sneezing into your arm rather than your hand are important preventive measures.

Although the season has already begun, there is still time to get the flu shot. Most people will recover on their own at home.

Avoid sharing food, drinks and utensils with others.

Avoid close contact with those who are sick.

There is also evidence now that viruses spread more easily through the dry air.

"It's not too late for people to get the flu shot, which this year has been shown to be a good match with the strains of the virus circulation". Make sure to wash your hands after.
