Flu Update

Maine Center for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) has distributed a Public Health Advisory that flu activity in Maine is widespread with laboratory-confirmed influenza reported in all 16 counties. Maine’s Health and Environmental Testing Laboratory has indicated that most strains of influenza are circulating in Maine.

Prevention of influenza is key and Maine CDC recommends following the "No Flu 4 You” guidelines which include:

  1. Wash Your Hands: Both the general public and healthcare providers should remember to wash their hands frequently to prevent transmission of influenza.
  2. Cover Your Cough: Use tissues or cough into your sleeves.
  3. Stay Home When You are Sick: Symptomatic individuals should remain home until 24 hours after fever resolves without the use of medications.
  4. Get Vaccinated: Annual vaccination is recommended for everyone age 6 months and older.
Mid Coast Hospital - January 2018 Flu Update

Flu vaccination is still widely available, especially to protect those persons at risk of severe disease. Contact your primary care provider or local pharmacies to get your flu shot.
