Influenza

The Flu season is right around the corner, and the Kewaunee County Public Health Department wants to make sure that you and your family are protected!

Each year, the flu season runs from October to May.

Influenza is a contagious respiratory virus that can live on surfaces and spread through coughing and sneezing. Symptoms include fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, body aches, and tiredness.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that everyone six months of age and older gets vaccinated. 

It is especially important for our loved ones that are at high risk for flu complications receive the vaccine, like those who are older or have chronic illnesses.

The vaccine is your first line of defense against getting the flu or greatly lessening your symptoms if you do have the flu. Influenza viruses are constantly changing. 

Influenza vaccines are updated every year and annual vaccination is recommended. 

People cannot get influenza from the vaccine.  This vaccine is safe, effective, and generally has very few side effects. 

Make sure to wash hands with soap and water or use hand sanitizer often to limit the spread of this illness.

Finally, stay home if you aren’t feeling well.
