Welcome back to campus!  We hope you had a good break and are ready to start classes.  SHS would like to remind the community that it is not too late to get a flu shot if you have not had one yet.  We still have plenty of vaccine. Widespread flu activity has been reported in Maryland, as well as many other states.  Flu activity usually peaks in February, and can continue until May.  This season’s flu vaccine is a good match to circulating viruses.

Continued precautions as proper rest, exercise, hydration and frequent hand washing or use of hand sanitizer are essential over the next weeks and months, and if you get the flu, stay home and rest.  Drink plenty of fluids and seek medical attention for severe symptoms.   Prompt use of antiviral medication can decrease the symptoms and prevent the complications of the flu.

The symptoms of the flu include fever, usually over 101 degrees Fahrenheit, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, severe muscle and body aches, headaches, fatigue, and some individuals have vomiting and diarrhea, though this is more common in children than adults. Symptoms usually begin suddenly and progress rapidly.

For more information please visit the CDC web site https://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/disease/index.htm

Norovirus is also prevalent in Maryland.  Norovirus is the most common cause of stomach cramping, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.  This virus spreads rapidly by eating food or drinking liquids that are contaminated, touching contaminated surfaces and then putting your hands in your mouth, or having direct contact with a person who is sick. While there is not a vaccine against this virus, there are many precautions you can take to protect yourself.

Wash your hands frequently. Do not prepare food if you are sick. Clean and disinfect contaminated surfaces and wash laundry thoroughly. 

For more information about the Norovirus please visit the CDC website

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact SHS at 410-543-6262, or to make an appointment for a flu shot. Online appointments can be made online at:  myhealth.salisbury.edu

Tips for a Healthy Start to the Semester

Student Health recommends that all students have a yearly influenza vaccine. Students can make an appointment to have the vaccine in our office.

Give your diet a boost by eating fresh berries. They are rich in antioxidants and high in fiber.

Do not neglect your sleep.

Exercise is a great way to reduce stress and lowers your risk of developing many diseases such as heart disease and diabetes.

And most importantly, go to class!

Tips for a Healthy Summer

The staff of Student Health Services hopes that you have had a productive semester and want to provide some tips for a healthy summer.

  1. Give your diet a boost by eating fresh berries. They are rich in antioxidants and high in fiber.
  2. Protect your skin from harmful sun rays and always wear sunscreen.
  3. Your eyes also need protection from the sun. Sunglasses help prevent cataracts, as well as provide protection.
  4. Use insect repellent and wear long sleeve shirts and pants, especially at dusk and if hiking in the woods to avoid tick and bug bites.
  5. Please visit the CDC website for information about the Zika Virus. Zika virus has been linked to birth defects in children if the mother is infected with the virus while pregnant. (link to CDC Zika site: http://www.cdc.gov/zika/index.html)
  6. Always keep yourself well hydrated when working or playing outdoors, especially during hot and humid days.
  7. Do not neglect your sleep.
  8. The summer months are also an excellent time to update your immunizations. While illnesses such as influenza are on the decline, traveling abroad can carry the risk of coming in contact with diseases that are not found in the United States. Please take the time to go to the secure patient portal to check your immunization status and update vaccines as needed.

Have a great summer, and stay healthy!
