Influenza or flu season is upon us again! The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimated that almost 80,000 people died as a result of the flu or complications from the flu during the 2017-2018 season. The previous record was 56,000 deaths during the 2012-2013 season,
Flu symptoms can include any of the following: fever, sore throat, chills, muscle aches, fatigue, cough, headache, and a runny or stuffy nose. Severity can range from mild to severe. People over 65, babies and young children, and pregnant women are generally more susceptible to the flu, as are people who have weakened immune systems.
The CDC recommends everyone over 6 months of age receive the flu vaccination, as long as there are no contraindications or allergies to the vaccine or its components. People who are allergic to eggs, for example, are not recommended to receive the vaccine since it contains a small amount of egg protein. People who have a disorder known as Guillain-Barre syndrome (in which the body’s immune system attacks the nervous system) should also not receive the vaccine. Generally, it takes the body about 2 weeks to develop protection after the vaccine is given, but this protection will last throughout the season (October-May).
For more information on the flu and this year’s flu vaccine visit www.cdc.gov/flu. This website also has weekly updates on flu activity and offers tips on prevention and treatment.
Here are some helpful tips (courtesy of WebMD) if you have the flu:
- Stay home.
- Drink plenty of fluids.
- Treat your aches and fever.
- Take care of your cough.
- Use a humidifier or sit in a steamy bathroom to relieve congestion.
- Suck on a lozenge to relieve a scratchy sore throat.
- Use saline nose drops to loosen nasal mucus.
