Flu Season

Author: Dr. Rima Solanki, DMD

Around this time of the year, most of us get sick with the flu or flu-like symptoms. These symptoms include fever, body aches, sore throat, cough, headaches, fatigue, vomiting and diarrhea. Best way to help fight the flu is to get flu shot in the months of October and November. If you haven’t gotten one this year, it is still not late to get one. The other way we can help ourselves is by limiting contact with people who are sick and if we get sick, it is best to stay home until you are fever-free for 24 hours. Kids miss school days and adults miss work days. Being in the health care facility, we are constantly disinfecting all surface areas and washing our hands as much as possible in addition to being complaint with OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration). We will be happy to reschedule your appointment if you have the flu or flu-like symptoms!
