St. Thomas Prepares for Flu Season

Peak flu season is approaching soon, and it's best to stay as prepared as possible. Common flu symptoms include:
  • Fever
  • Sore throat
  • Runny nose
  • Muscle aches
  • Respiratory symptoms
Some of the best ways to prevent the flu are by practicing basic hygiene, washing your hands regularly, or getting a flu shot before you feel any of these symptoms. Children and the elderly are more susceptible to dangerous side effects of the flu and should be extra careful during flu season. Step into a St. Thomas facility and get your flu shot today.

Reports released Thursday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention provide new details outlining the severity of the past flu season during which more people were killed than any seasonal influenza since the 1970s.
