Influenza Alert Fall 2018

Oct 1, 2018, 00:00 AM by Janak A. Patel, MD

Influenza Alert

The flu season is already here. UTMB clinics and hospitals have identified several cases of flu this season, however, this is still at a sporadic level in our community.

There is still sufficient time to vaccinate your clinic patients as well as healthcare employees before the flu outbreak expands further. Flu vaccination should not wait till later in the season. Last flu season was one of the worst encountered in our recent memory. The severity of flu this season cannot be predicted, but it is likely to be less severe.
