From the Nurse
The State Department of Health
web site is reporting widespread cases of influenza in the state. Although it takes approximately 2 weeks for
the vaccine to protect you from the flu the CDC is still recommending you get
the vaccine if you haven’t already. One
of the flu strains being reported this year is the H1N1 which is covered by the
vaccine and can make younger people who normally don’t get as sick with the flu
According to the VT Department of
Health if you get the flu follow these recommendations to help you get through
- Get plenty of rest.
- Drink plenty of liquids.
- Stay home
from work or school
to protect others from catching your illness. We ask that students stay home for 24
hours after their fever is down without fever reducing medication. They also need to be able to do their
work without cough or fatigue interfering.
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue every time you
cough or sneeze.
- Take medication to lessen the symptoms of flu, but
NEVER give aspirin to children or teenagers who have flu-like symptoms,
especially fever, without first checking with your health care
Although most of us will fully recover in a week or two
some people, adults as well as children, will get a secondary infection that
requires follow up with your doctor.
Look for these signs that you should call your doctor.
• High or prolonged fever
• Fast breathing or trouble
• Bluish skin color
• Not drinking enough fluids
• Changes in mental state such as
not waking up or interacting; being so cranky that they don’t want to be held;
Flu-like symptoms that get better but then return with fever and worse cough.
