Has the 2017 Flu Season Started Yet?
A great place to start in answering that question is sharing that our clinics have, in fact, already seen a good handful of flu cases this year. Flu Season typically starts in October and can last through May, according to the CDC. The heaviest part of the flu season typically falls between December and February (although, it does vary from year to year). We saw our first case in September!
It is important to note that Seniors, very young children, pregnant women, and those who have existing health conditions are more vulnerable to serious flu complications. However, everyone is somewhat vulnerable to coming down with the flu.
Reduce your chances of coming down with the flu by getting your flu shot as early as you can in the season. The best offence is a good defense! You can also reduce your chances of getting the flu by following a healthy lifestyle. Eat plenty of vegetables, a moderate amount of fruit and stay hydrated with water! Your body’s immune system will be strengthened and ready to help fight the flu should you come down with a case.
