Flu season’s only half over, and cases are increasing

This year’s influenza season is worse than an average year, and especially bad for senior citizens, Yolo County Health Department officials announce.

“We appear to be halfway through an early flu season with rates of influenza-related illness increasing in California,” said Constance Caldwell, M.D., interim Yolo County health officer. “Protect yourself, your family and your community by getting a flu shot, washing hands often and staying home when you are ill. These three steps go a long way in reducing the incidence, and in some cases, deaths related to flu.”

In addition to getting a flu shot every year, the Health Department recommends the following steps to avoid the flu:

* Wash hands often with soap and water;

* Regularly clean commonly touched surfaces such as countertops, doorknobs and telephones;

* Don’t share cups, straws or anything that goes in the mouth;

* Avoid touching your eyes and nose;

* Cover nose and mouth when you cough and sneeze, and promptly discard used facial tissues; and

* If you’re sick, stay home.

Flu shots are still available at the county’s immunization clinic, held every Tuesday from 2 to 5 p.m. at 137 N. Cottonwood St. in Woodland, or from local health care providers and pharmacies.
