Whooping Cough

The Department of Health continues to release updated information on the pertussis danger in our state.  Go to this site  http://www.doh.wa.gov/cfh/Immunize/documents/pertupdate.pdf  for more information about the increase in pertussis cases between 2010 and 2011. It also talks about the importance of adolescents and adults to get vaccinated against pertussis in order to protect infants, including the new recommendation for pregnant women.

 

Influenza News

It’s a good time to review  the following ways to stay healthy during flu season:

Wash hands often with soap and water or an alcohol-based hand rub. You should take about 20 seconds to wash hands.

Cover coughs and sneezes with tissues and wash hands afterward. If a tissue is not available, cover up coughs or sneezes using the elbow, arm or sleeve instead. 

Do not share drinks, food, unwashed utensils or other personal items.

As a reminder, here are the signs and symptoms of the flu.

Fever (100 degrees Fahrenheit or greater). You may appear flushed, be sweating or shivering, or feel warm to the touch.

Cough
Sore throat
Body aches
Headaches
Chills

If you have the flu or a flu-like illness

Stay home until at least 24 hours after the fever has passed without the use of fever-reducing drugs. Students need to stay home from child care, sports practices and other activities as well.
