No cost flu vaccines available at parish health units

Experts concerned as flu-related deaths continue to rise in Arkansas

But according to the Center for Disease Control, the flu season will likely get worse before it gets better.

According to the News & Observer, 95 people and counting have died from the flu or flu related symptoms (pneumonia, bronchitis and sinus infections, as well as exacerbations of asthma and congestive heart disease) in North Carolina, including the 10 deaths last week. "That might be another reason that this flu season is bad because even most of the vaccinated people are at risk".

In a statement from Mayo Clinic Health System the hospital says while there are no extra restrictions for visitors at this time patients are always asked to wear a mask if they have flu-like symptoms as are those who are visiting someone who have flu-like symptoms.

"We aren't out of the woods yet, but there are steps everyone can take to fight the flu", Shuchat said.

"I had the flu like symptoms for two weeks of coughing congestion the congestion sore ribs sinus. d if it's were free I would have probably taken the flu shot". The number of Americans hospitalized with flu per 100,000 has increased to 31.5 from to 22.7 the prior week.

There have been flu-related five deaths and 49 hospitalizations in the North Bay Parry Sound District Health Unit region this flu season.

But what happens after you've already gotten over the flu? Consumer Reports Health experts say it is not too late this flu season to get the flu vaccine.

The virus also may spread when people touch something with flu virus on it and then touch their eyes, nose or mouth. Gray responded with washing your hands. Wash your hands often with soap and water. Doorknobs, countertops, airplane tray tables, computer keyboards and phones can silently transfer germs from one person to another.

No. The emergency room should be used for people who are very sick. She demonstrates the "magic trick" of sneezing or coughing into the crook of an arm.

If you don't have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve, not your hands. The flu vaccine isn't as effective against this strain as it is for the others. Last season, six children in the city died of flu-related illness. Healthy visitors can also benefit from the mask's protection at a time when many hospitals report being swamped with flu patients.

Pace said along with taking precautions when she's out in public places, she also got the vaccine back in November. The difference between colds and flu is that colds are generally milder. "The biggest mistake we make is not keeping them home until they're better".
