Flu by Dr Darryl Addington, Surgeon General


Author: Mick Pitzer

Flu season is approaching. The onset is late September or early October

And lasts until April. The peak time is February. The flu vaccine is recommended for everyone over 6 months of age. The vaccine should be given in late September or early October.

The flu is worse for children and adults over 65. Eighty per cent of children who die with the flu were not vaccinated. Flu is worse in adults who have asthma, diabetes, cardio-vascular disease, obesity or a compromised immune system.

The systems of flu include cold systems, fever, chills, cough, sore throat, runny nose, muscle and body aches, headache and fatigue. Vomiting and diarrhea may occur especially in children.

People ill with flu should stay home, rest and avoid contact with others until 24 hours after fever subsides. Anti-viral medications can be prescribed by your physician, most effective if started within 2 days of onset of the flu.

If adults have trouble breathing, pain and pressure in the chest or abdomen, dizziness, confusion, vomiting or if systems improve and the return with fever and worse cough, they should see their physician.

Remember, wash your hands, avoid ill people and crowds, cover up coughs, stay home if ill and most of all: get your flu vaccine.
