Did You Know???

  • People carrying the virus can be contagious 1 day before their symptoms appear and about 5 to 7 days after they first get symptoms making the virus more likely to be passed on to other members of the family or your co-workers.

  • Findings show that about 90% of influenza associated deaths occur among adults 65 years and older and in children under the age of 5.

  • Influenza can lead to severe conditions such as pneumonia and dehydration and it can also exacerbate existing conditions such as diabetes and heart conditions.

  • People rarely get sick or have side effects from the vaccine. Side effects (if any) are usually seen 1 to 2 days after receiving the vaccination. However, none of the side effects are as serious as actually contracting the flu itself which can have symptoms that last for 2-3 weeks
