-Dr. Derek Lewis, Arkansas Primary Care Clinic | There is a Nationwide influenza epidemic.  According to the Arkansas Health Department, 125 people have died, including 3 pediatric deaths to date.  Precautions you can take to keep you and your loved ones healthy are:

  • Wear a mask
  • Handwashing
  • Take Vitamin C
  • Take flu shot (Especially adults over 65 years of age)
  • Rest
  • Avoid going to the doctor’s office if you have the flu. Call them instead, and they can call-in a prescription to your pharmacy.
  • Avoid shaking hands. Fist bump instead
  • Hydrate (Drink plenty of water)
  • Sanitize
  • A good recommendation is to wait at least 5 days before returning to work if you had the flu virus.
  • Note:  Antibiotics can fight infections caused by bacteria, but will not fight the flu.  The flu is caused by a virus.
