Flu outbreak forces Columbia hospital to add temporary space

The Oakland County Health Division is urging residents to get the influenza vaccine after more than 1,705 flu cases were reported in the county between October 1, 2017 and January 18. Since children are more likely to get sick and spread the flu, our staff will only allow children under 18 to visit patients in special cases or with prior approval from the patient's health care team. Every state except Hawaii is reporting widespread influenza activity, making for a lot of miserable people suffering from classic flu symptoms of cough, fever, headache, stuffy nose, and achy muscles. I think the Center for Disease Control and Prevention have compared it to when we had the swine flu - and that's been several years ago. She says the flu shot might not cover all the different flu strains but staying 40 percent safe is better than zero.

Since September 1 of past year, there have been 19 flu-related deaths, 144 laboratory-confirmed influenza A cases, and 286 cases of influenza B in London and Middlesex County.

If you haven't gotten your flu shot and don't feel like getting out of your auto, the Oklahoma City-County Health Department has the clinic for you.

"We see a surge during flu season, but this seems to be a bigger impact this year", says Dr. Steve Shelton, an emergency physician with Palmetto Health Richland. "It's not too late to get your flu vaccine at any of our health departments, local pharmacies or doctors' offices".

Additionally, people are being urged to take precautions by frequently washing their hands or using hand sanitizer, covering mouths when coughing or sneezing, avoiding close contact with anyone who is sick and staying home if a person suspects they have the flu.

"Obviously, when you get the flu, you're going to have body aches", she said. The high-dose flu shot recommended for those 65 years and older is $47 and covered by Medicare.

"Many of the patients that have come in have been immunized". A spokesperson said if you can't afford that, they will work with you so you don't leave the department without being vaccinated.?

Last year 420,603 people were diagnosed with the flu in MI, and that number is continuing to rise each year. More than 2,500 hospitalizations have been reported since flu season began.

When possible, avoid being exposed to people who are sick with flu-like symptoms. "We've got to sterilize where they Saturday".
