Not Too Late to Get a Shot or Get a Jab

Not Too Late to Get a Shot or Get a Jab

"We want our local community to be especially sensitive to those with chronic conditions and pregnant women because they are considered at a higher risk", Department of Public Health Director Robert Resendes said in a statement. "Everyone six months and older who have not yet gotten vaccinated should get their flu vaccine as soon as possible".

On the Mainland, the flu season runs from October to May, but Hawaii gets flu year-round, according to Hawaii health officials. Some hospitals have had to divert patients because they were innovated with flu sufferers.

Dr. Skelton warns that the map for the flu and this flu-like virus are both widespread. However, it can lead to serious illness and death.

In the meantime, he advocated for people throughout the county to pull pack on social conventions such as hand shaking and to get vaccinated. "In Louisiana, we are already on track to meet and possibly exceed these statistics for the current flu season". Fever in older children and adults is rarer. There is plenty of vaccine available across the state.

Practice other good health habits.

"You only get the Chicken Pox once".

Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food.

Does this mean, then, that the flu has simply peaked early this year? When you can't wash your hands, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. The fast lane for access to your insides are all those openings in your head; your eyes, nose, mouth and ears. Call ahead to places like doctor's offices, nursing homes and senior centers to see if they have special visitation restrictions for those who have flu-like symptoms. Use a tissue to cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze.

Experts say many patients aren't aware when they're putting themselves at risk.

"Stay home, don't go to work, don't go to the gym, don't go to religious services", Schaffner told ABC News.

Anyone who experiences more severe symptoms such as trouble breathing, pain or pressure in the chest or abdomen, difficulty eating or drinking, or confusion should contact their health care provider or seek emergency care. It's a strain of influenza Type A that isn't necessarily as virulent as some other strains of flu, but it can mutate quickly, placing more of a burden on the body's ability to fight it off.
