Yesterday afternoon’s weekly flu report shows that influenza is still circulating widely in AZ… with a steep increase in the last couple of weeks. The strain that’s circulating is mostly Type A – H3N2 which can be more severe than the 2009 H1N1, especially for seniors. There are plenty of B strains going around too. But you can still find a vaccine through Stop the Spread AZ – just be sure to call the place first to make sure they still have it and if you need an appointment. By the way- this year’s vaccine is still a perfect match for the circulating strains. The best prevention besides getting vaccinated is to wash your hands and make sure you cough or sneeze into your sleeve instead of your hand. Most importantly… don’t send your kids to school sick and don’t go to work sick either.
