The Flu and You - 2015 Update
Have you had your flu shot yet this season?
January 2015

The annual influenza epidemic has hit the U.S. a bit early this season, and it's already putting thousands of people into the hospital. The latest data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows "elevated" flu activity in all parts of the country, even though flu season historically hasn't peaked in the United States until January or even February.

Influenza isn't usually tested for or reported so the CDC has to look indirectly for evidence of flu. Data for last week show states in every U.S. region have extra cases of flu-like illness, which can include colds, bacterial infections and a range of respiratory viruses. But anywhere from 11 to 36 percent of people who are tested turn out to have influenza. It's worst in the Southeast, New Jersey and parts of the Midwest.

CDC's been warning of a bad flu season. Most infections are caused by a strain called H3N2 this year, and two-thirds of them are a strain that is not included in this year's flu vaccine. There are also a few cases of H1N1 and two types of influenza B. So at least four strains of flu are circulating now. Some are included in the current flu vaccines and some are not.

If you have not been vaccinated yet, get your flu vaccine now.

The CDC recommends a three prong approach:

  • Get a flu vaccine it is not too late.
  • Try to avoid close contact with sick people.
  • If you are sick with flu-like illness, CDC recommends that you stay home for at least 24 hours after your fever is gone except to get medical care or for other necessities. (Your fever should be gone without the use of a fever-reducing medicine.)
  • While sick, limit contact with others as much as possible to keep from infecting them.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use analcohol-based hand rub(http://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/qa/preventing.htm#hand-sanitizers).
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Germs spread this way.
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with germs like the flu.
  • If you get the flu, antiviral drugs can treat your illness.
  • Antiviral drugs are different from antibiotics. They are prescription medicines (pills, liquid or an inhaled powder) and are not available over-the-counter.
