71 per cent fall in number of flu cases

The Grundy County Health Department would like to remind everyone we're still offering adult and children's influenza vaccinations by appointment every week. As long as flu viruses are spreading and causing illness, vaccination should continue throughout the flu season in order to protect as many people as possible against flu.

In a related announcement, during September 2018, the CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) said on its website that they recommend that all women who are or might be pregnant during the influenza season receive an influenza vaccine.

The Fairfield Health Department will be participating in a statewide effort urging all individuals to get a flu shot and have the power of the "Florce". Flu symptoms may include fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches and fatigue.

Kaiser Permanente reported 10 percent of influenza samples tested positive last week for the flu. Antibodies that provide protection develop in the body about two weeks after vaccination. Most people recover from the flu without complications, but nationwide there are up to 200,000 hospitalizations from flu each year.
