Flu is Here


Influenza (flu) is here. All influenza viruses cause a respiratory illness that can last a week or more. Have your child seen in our office if they have any of the following symptoms:
  • A sudden fever (usually above 101°F or 38.3°C)
  • Chills and body shakes
  • Headache, body aches, and being a lot more tired than usual
  • Sore throat
  • Dry, hacking cough
  • Stuffy, runny nose
To help stop the spread of germs like influenza, RSV, and whooping cough (Pertussis):
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze
  • Put your used tissue in the waste basket
  • If you don't have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve or elbow, not your hands
  • Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for 20 seconds
  • If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub
