Columbia Health Department urges residents to help in response to swine flu
HUDSON - Columbia County Health Department is urging people worried about the new flu virus H1N1 to avoid calling 9-1-1 unless they have a true emergency, or going to hospitals and doctors’ offices unless they really need treatment.
Do not rush to your doctor or hospital emergency room to get flu vaccine. Because this is a new virus, there is no effective vaccine at the present time. It will take at least six months to produce a vaccine that could protect you against the new virus. Last season’s flu vaccine will not help against this flu strain. Also, if this virus turns out to spread person-to-person, and you go to a health care facility, you will be at increased risk of exposure to people who are already ill.
The New York State Health Department and the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are investigating to determine how people who are infected with the new strain of flu contracted the illness, and whether any had a travel history. However, confirmation of the new flu strain coincides with an unusual occurrence of influenza-like illness in the region so it is prudent to reduce the amount of time you spend in public places.
Most flu patients can be cared for at home with supportive treatment to reduce their temperature and maintain an adequate fluid intake. However, children should not be given aspirin to reduce pain or fever because it could cause a rare but potentially serious condition called Reye’s syndrome.
