Flu: It’s coming PDF Print
Sunday, 04 November 2007 20:45

While there are no diagnosed cases in Watauga yet, the Health Department’s Debbie Garrett says beware:

“It is flu season,” she said.


Between now and March flu-like symptoms pop up- and there have been cases already in other western North Carolina counties.

 

Flu symptoms are usually worse than a common cold, she said- and include aches, pains, fevers and respiratory symptoms.

 

It takes a couple of weeks after getting the flu shot to build up your immunity, Garrett says, so get your vaccine now.

 

Flu vaccines are made with dead influenza virus- which makes it impossible for you to contract the flu from the shot, Garrett says. She says to call your health care provider today.
