Metro Atlanta Flu Activity “HIGH”

ach week, millions of Google users around the world search for health information online. As you might expect, there are more flu-related searches during flu season, more allergy-related searches during allergy season, and more sunburn-related searches during the summer.

Currently in Metro Atlanta, Google searches for flu related topics are HIGH and continues to rise daily.

What does all of this mean?

The flu virus is on the rise in Metro Atlanta… but it’s not too late to get vaccinated.  Employers should encourage their employees to get a flu shot as soon as possible.  Flu season usually peaks around February or March which puts everyone at risk for the next 3+ months.  Early immunization is the most effective, but it is not too late to get the vaccine in December, January, or beyond.

Prevention doesn’t stop with the flu shot…

Arguably the most proven approach to preventing the spread of flu is sanitation.  Wash your hands with an antibacterial wash – disinfect common surfaces such as phone receivers, doorknobs, light switches, and remote controls – and always drink plenty of water. Water can help strengthen your immune system, keeping the flu at bay.

And if you do get sick, water flushes your system, re-hydrates you and washes out the toxins.

What precautions are you taking this flu season?

In the Georgia Public Health Dept Report, J. Patrick O’Neal, director of health protection for the department, said “because the flu vaccine so closely matches this year’s flu strains, it just makes sense it to get it.”
