Flu season is just around the corner!  Influenza ("the flu") has some symptoms in common with the common cold, but it differs in that it usually comes on suddenly and more intensely.  In addition to cold symptoms, influenza symptoms can include fever, body aches, fatigue and headache.  Most people who develop influenza recover within two weeks, but in some vulnerable populations (including children, elderly, immune-compromised), the flu can result in hospitalization and even death.  The best way to protect yourself from the flu is to get vaccinated. The health department is offering flu vaccines at this time. To make an appointment call 414-371-2980 or visit our website at http://www.nshealthdept.org/NewEappt.aspx and request an appointment online. In addition to getting your flu vaccine, follow these important tips to stay healthy:
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick. This is especially important if you work with a vulnerable population (i.e. elderly, children)
  • Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze.
  • Wash your hands-especially before eating and after coughing, sneezing or blowing your nose.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
The health department will also be holding an open flu vaccine clinic at Nicolet High School on Saturday, October 21st from 9:00am-11:00am in the Cafeteria. Flu vaccine for children 3-18 years of age will be available at a reduced price of $10. Flu vaccine will also be available at the regular price for adults. We can bill Medicare, but all other individuals must pay with cash or check. Please visit our website at http://www.nshealthdept.org/Clinics.aspx for pricing information.
