From the Clinic

Flu season is upon us!!!

Encourage good hand washing with soap/water, keep hands away from eyes, nose, and mouth, and not to share items. Parents if you take your child to doctor, and get a diagnosis of the flu, please share that information with your child’s teacher, or the school nurse.

From CDC:

Rates of infection are highest among children, but rates of serious illness, and death are highest among persons ages 65, and older. Persons of any age who have medical conditions that place them at increased risk for complications from influenza are also at risk. During most influenza seasons, 10-20% of the nation’s population is infected with this virus.

36,000 Flu related deaths each year in the US

~90% of deaths among persons age 65 and older

October – November best time to receive flu vaccination

Takes about 2 weeks to develop antibodies

Infection in pregnancy increases risk
