Tips to Help Businesses Beat the Flu Season

Influenza Vaccination

Influenza Vaccination

The flu is not the stomach illness many people call the flu, but the flu is the respiratory illness that can make you ill for weeks, can put you into the hospital, and can kill.

According to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, flu activity is low overall, but it is increasing in the United States, she said.

"Businesses should be proactive in helping keep workers and customers safe from getting the flu virus by taking steps to help prevent the spread of germs in their facilities", says Adam Soreff, director of marketing and communications at UniFirst Corporation, a leading provider of work uniforms and facility service products to businesses throughout the North America.

The Ministry of Public Health announced that 100,000 people have been vaccinated as part of the national campaign for vaccination against seasonal influenza, which started three months ago and is still continuing.

"The current flu season began two weeks earlier compared to a year ago", Madison told Ireland in an email.

County health officials today reported the death of a San Diego County man due to flu complications, bringing this flu season's death toll in the region to seven.

The number of people getting sick from the flu in MI is lower than this same time a year ago, according to statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. After last year's record numbers for confirmed cases and hospitalization, the Health Department says they are hoping residents take the infection seriously and take measures to protect themselves against it.

There have been 92 confirmed cases so far this season with 13 hospitalizations and two deaths reported. In recent years, about 70 to 90 percent of seasonal flu-related deaths have occurred in people 65 years and older, according to the CDC.

In addition, preliminary data from Australia - which already had its flu season - showed that people who had been vaccinated this year were 68 per cent less likely to see a doctor or nurse practitioner for the flu compared to unvaccinated people, she said.

Now that the Christmas holidays have passed, it's time to prepare for the future by starting the new year healthier by preventing the flu.
