2016 Flu Season

  The flu is a contagious respiratory illness caused by the influenza virus that infects, the nose, throat and lung cavities. It causes mild to severe illness, and even death in some cases. People most at risk for serious flu infections include children, pregnant women, and people 65 years of age and older.

  By taking certain precautions, you may decrease your chances of contracting the Influenza virus. The first step to protecting one's self is to get a flu vaccination every year. Secondly, remember always cover your mouth while sneezing/coughing, and wash your hands as often as possible. Thirdly, try to stay away from people that are exhibiting symptoms, such as fatigue, fever, runny nose, coughing, muscle aches, nausea, and vomiting.

  The flu may last anywhere from 7 to 14 days and is extremely contagious. Therefore, if you start to experience any of these symptoms, it is important to visit your physician to be tested for the flu. If needed, your physician will be able to prescribe medication that treats the virus. This medication works best when started within 48 hours of flu symptoms.

At The Medical Arts Clinic,we take pride in our ability to provide a

"home town" experience with " big city " conveniences.
