Not Too Late to Get a Shot or Get a Jab

91 Flu Related Deaths Reported in San Diego County

A strain of Australian flu is working its way across the country with more than 1,600 people struck down with symptoms.

If you get the flu, proper care can lessen symptoms and decrease the time you are ill and able to infect others.

More than 1,000 cases of flu have been reported in El Paso so far this season -four times more than at this time a year ago, officials said. The county recently moved to an electronic case reporting system, and it has become more common in recent years for doctors to use formal flu tests to confirm the present of the viral illness. Typical side effects include soreness, redness and swelling at the injection site, headache, fever, nausea and muscle aches.

Flu can be especially risky for pregnant women, young children, people age 65 and older, and those who have underlying health conditions such as asthma and other chronic diseases.

Bhide said many people are catching the flu in public, on airplanes, at gyms, and movie theaters.

Wright says it's normal to see a rise in reported flu cases in February, and she offers a resounding yes that it is not too late to get the flu vaccine. "Those with flu symptoms are encouraged to seek out medical care as soon as possible after onset of flu like symptoms".

"Avoid having unnecessary contact with other people if you or they have symptoms of flu". Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth with your hands.

Stay at home and get plenty of rest. Use a tissue to cover your nose and mouth when you sneeze or cough and always throw the used tissue in the trash. Antiviral drugs may be prescribed to treat the flu.

Wash Your Hands- With soap and water. The vaccine is a mixture of different strains of the flu that periodically change to cover what's prevalent and administered in a shot. About 71 percent of those doses were given by private health providers while the balance came from public health vaccination clinics and other government-sponsored programs. According to the Center for Disease Control the number of cases began rising as we rang in the New Year, but fortunately there are some easy ways to lower your risk of coming down with a stomach bug this winter. Influenza frequently leads to pneumonia that can be prevented by the pneumococcal vaccine.
