CDC HEALTH ADVISORY

UPDATE: Severe Influenza Illness Reported

CDC urges rapid antiviral treatment of very ill and high risk suspect influenza patients without waiting for testing

CDC has detected a co-circulation of influenza A(H3N2), A(H1N1)pdm09, and influenza B viruses. However, H1N1pdm09 viruses have predominated in recent weeks. CDC has received recent reports of severe respiratory illness among young- to middle-aged adults with H1N1pdm09 virus infection, some of whom required intensive care unit (ICU) admission; fatalities have been reported.

While this severity of illness had not yet been reported in Kentucky, we are coming upon “peak” season for the flu and influenza activity is increasing across the country and CDC has received reports of severe influenza illness. Clinicians are reminded to treat suspected influenza in high-risk outpatients, those with progressive disease, and all hospitalized patients with antiviral medications as soon as possible, regardless of negative rapid influenza diagnostic test (RIDT) results and without waiting for RT-PCR testing results. Early antiviral treatment works best, but treatment may offer benefit when started up to 4-5 days after symptom onset in hospitalized patients. Early antiviral treatment can reduce influenza morbidity and mortality.

It’s not too late to get vaccinated. Everyone 6 months of age and older is encouraged to get the flu vaccine.  Flu vaccines are now available at both MCHD clinics. You may call for an appointment or walk in from 8:00-10:00 am each day.


Wear Red on Friday!

The Heart TruthTo raise awareness among local women that heart disease is their #1 health threat, Madison County Health Department joined National Wear Red Day, Friday February 5, 2016.

National Wear Red Day is a day when Americans nationwide wear red to show their support for women's heart disease awareness. By joining together, we can raise awareness locally about heart disease and help lead women on the path to prevention.

Flu Shots

Flu BugFlu season has arrived!  No one looks forward to the cough, body aches, fatigue and other side effects that are a result of contracting the flu.  Preventive measures such as frequent handwashing and covering your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze can reduce your chance of getting the flu.  However, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Madison County Health Department recommend the flu vaccine as your first step of protection.

Everyone 6 months of age and older is encouraged to get the flu vaccine.  The following people are considered at greater risk for complications from the flu and are specifically urged to get the vaccine:

  • Young children
  • Adults 65 years and older
  • Pregnant women
  • People with chronic health conditions such as asthma, diabetes or heart and lung disease

Flu vaccines are now available at both MCHD clinics. You may call for an appointment or walk in from 8:00-10:00 am each day.
