Albany-- With the shortage of flu vaccine, we're having to look for other ways to avoid getting the flu. There are some things you can do to protect yourself. It's a lesson even students are learning.
The Southside Middle School nurse is getting ready, "Anytime now, October, November is prime flu season, it usually hits its peak in January and February," says Nurse Ri Lamb.
Once one child gets the flu, "We did see several cases of flu last year, kids coming to the clinic," more children are sure to follow, "It does pass quickly from person to another."
To stop the spread of flu, there is an easy answer. All you really need is a little soap and water to help prevent a nasty case of the flu."
Lamb says, "Eating a very healthy diet, this is just number one, if you are going to have a healthy immune system then you need to have a healthy diet." Besides eating well, don't share eating and drinking utensils and cover your mouth when you sneeze.
Lamb says, "I think the concern is there because of the lack of the vaccine that the season will be worse."
Keeping the flu at bay could be as easy as keeping clean this flu season. Symptoms associated with the flu are a high fever, 102 degrees or more, muscle aches and nausea at times. The first 48 hours are critical, if you think you have the flu, see a doctor. They might be able to prescribe a medicine that can shorten the duration of the flu.
