CAMPUS FLU UPDATE:
Health Services is pleased to announce that campus flu activity has been minimal since the beginning of February. There is still at least a month left of the official flu season, therefore we are still recommending that you get vaccinated if you haven’t done so yet this year.
- The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reports that this flu season was particularly rough for people ages 18-24, who represented over 60% of the hospitalizations and deaths related to influenza.
- If you are experiencing flu like symptoms we encourage you to be seen at the Health Center to be tested for Influenza.
- Students, faculty and staff are all welcome to receive medical services at the Health Center.
- Call 208-426-1459 for an appointment or walk in to the Health Center to be seen by an Urgent Care Provider.
” Flu hospitalizations and deaths in people younger-and middle-aged adults is a sad and difficult reminder that flu can be serious for anyone, not just he very young and very old; and that everyone should be vaccinated”, said CDC Director Tom Frenden, M.D., M.P.H. “The good news is that this season’s vaccine is doing it’s job, protecting people across all age groups”.
PERTUSSIS (WHOOPING COUGH) ALERT:
From January 1st to February 19th of 2014, 35 probable and confirmed cases of pertussis were reported in Idaho.
