Flu season precaution

Dr. Steve Salvatore, Co-Owner of The Academy

Precaution is key as we head into the height of flu season.  January and February are typically considered the worst months for the flu.  This winter, we are already faced with a particularly tough strain of Type-A flu that’s spreading throughout the US.  This strain is known as H3N2 and it brings on phuenomia and other complications.  Those hardest hit by this bug are the very young and the elderly; but it can still hit the rest of us pretty hard.

The good news is that there’s still plenty of flu vaccine available.  Do not wait too long; it typically takes two weeks before the vaccine kicks in.
