What's Going Around?

Influenza

Among the many viruses we see causing respiratory illness right now, the influenza virus (commonly called "the flu") can be particularly severe. Infection with the influenza virus causes sudden onset of a fever, chills, dry cough, and muscle aches. Other symptoms include headache, fatigue, sore throat, and nasal congestion.

Some children are at increased risk of more serious illness from influenza, because of conditions such as diabetes, asthma, immunity problems, or being treated with immune-suppressing medications.  They are especially vulnerable to complications, and should get vaccinated as soon as possible. The "Seasonal Flu Shot"  or the "Seasonal Nasal FluMist" that has been administered to many people this year protects against Influenza A, B and H1N1.

Please get a vaccination if you and your child have not yet had it this year!
