Flu Season is Coming, Get Ready Clarksville TN
As we enter fall it's time to schedule getting that flu shot so the flu will not knock you off your feet this fall or winter. There are cases already starting and health care providers are already saying it isn't too early to be vaccinated. We usually don't expect flu season to start until later in the fall but the truth is it never goes away and flu strikes all year long. See what has been happening by clicking here to see the weekly report for Tennessee (Clarksville) Region 4.
Young children and babies, expectant mothers, the elderly and those with respiratory and heart problems should definitely get immunized. Doing it early may head off getting sick or at the very least minimizing the exposure. Flu can bring complications that could result in death.

These are similar to a bad cold but flu-like symptoms are much stronger with lots of fatigue making you want to stay home and go to bed. The CDC does weekly monitoring and reports symptoms to watch out for.
If you think you have the flu see a doctor right away. There are medications to help reduce the effects and get you well quicker. Stay home and don't take your germs to the office. Aspirin or acetaminophen may help with reducing the discomforts and lowering the fever. Wash your hands often and drink plenty of liquids.
