Just thought i would give everyone a heads up. Over the past 2 weeks there has been a dramatic rise in the number of flu cases we are seeing locally and what the CDC has been reporting across the country. Its early yet and I can not remember a year as bad as this. We are seeing a half dozen cases of culture positive ( documented) influenza daily when we usually see 1-2 cases a week this time of the year. The good news is that I have yet to see a case in anyone who was vaccinated so this years vaccine seems to be working well.
If you haven’t already gotten your vaccine you may want to do so quickly. It takes about 2 weeks to develop peak immunity. In the mean time wash your hands frequently.
