Dear Members of the Campus Community,

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. While the flu season has been slow to start, the CDC expects an increase in flu activity over the next few weeks.  Flu activity usually peaks in February, and can continue until May.  This season’s flu vaccine is a better 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 http://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/season/flu-season-2015-2016.htm

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.
