Fight the Flu!

flubugFlu season is upon us. In Madison County, many people are experiencing flu-like symptoms, and many positive rapid flu tests are being reported by local clinics and doctors offices. Forty-six states, including Kentucky, are reporting widespread flu activity.

If you haven't gotten your flu shot, it is not too late! It will still offer some protection. Although a drifted variant of influenza A, H3N2, that is not in the vaccine is causing much of the illness this year, getting the flu shot can reduce the flu's severity if you do catch it. Anyone who is at risk of complications from the flu should seek treatment if flu-like symptoms develop and consider antiviral medications such as Tamiflu or Relenza.

MCHD monitors influenza activity in our community each flu season. For more information about the current 2014 influenza season, click here.

You can call our health clinics at 859-623-7312 (Richmond) or 859-986-1192 (Berea) for more information or to schedule an appointment. You can also visit the CDC's seasonal influenza site for more info.

Freedom From Smoking® Online

Freedom From Smoking® Online, or FFS Online, is a program specifically designed for adults who want to quit smoking. It’s an adaptation of the American Lung Association’s gold standard, group clinic that has helped thousands of smokers to quit for good.

FFS Online does not begin with quitting. The program takes you through several lessons first, ensuring that solid information about preparing to quit is given before Quit Day. Go ahead and progress through the lessons and modules until you complete the entire program. The beauty of FFS Online is that it can be accessed day or night, seven days a week, on any schedule you choose.
