DE urgent cares seeing an increase in patients with flu-like symptoms

According to the CDC, there have been almost 14,000 confirmed cases of the flu this season.

The flu doesn't discriminate as to who it will infect, which is why it's important to make sure your workforce is prepared for flu season - which is now in full force. Peak flu season, however, hits between December and February.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that everyone over the age of 6 get their flu shot each season.

Kasetty said people should also contact their health care providers as soon as they notice symptoms of influenza, as medical treatments for the flu are most effective when started within 48 hours of the onset of symptoms.

Even if vaccinated, there are more ways to prevent the spread of influenza. The widespread medical consensus is: Get vaccinated, just in case, since for the vast majority of people there's no medical or financial downside and plenty of public health upside.

Myth: There's no point in getting a flu shot if it's later in the flu season.
. As recently as, last week a 26-year-old West Virginia woman died from complications of the flu.

Christmas celebrated in Odisha
Shah said the officials of the Tourism department would also attend travel and trade fairs to woo more tourists to Kashmir. Due to cyclone Ockhi that affected several people in the state, the Latin Catholic churches avoided celebrations.

During flu season, Fresno County health officials remind people to get plenty of rest, eat a healthy diet including fruits and vegetables and be physically active each day. It's already been flu season there.

The number of states reporting widespread flu activity has almost doubled this week, just 1 indicator of an intensifying flu season.

CDC Deputy Director-General Philip Lo (羅一鈞) said the funding for the policy would be provided by the Paujar Charity Foundation and would be donated in yearly batches from next year to 2028, helping the government provide better protection for infants older than 12 months. The overall idea is to practice good health habits. For example, people with asthma may experience asthma attacks while they have the flu, and people with chronic congestive heart failure may experience worsening of this condition that is triggered by the flu. Some people never show any signs of flu symptoms but may act as carriers of the virus, infecting their loved ones.

Dr. Holder also said it is not too late to get a flu shot. With the holidays in full swing, and families traveling and getting together, that is expected to get worse.

Dr. Holder says the vaccine is only 40% to 60% effective on a good year.
