Flu Blows in Early This Season

JACKSON, Miss. — The Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH) is reporting an increase in flu activity.  “The increased activity is throughout the state,” said MSDH State Epidemiologist Dr. Paul Byers.

The flu season usually peaks from January to March in Mississippi, but infections can be seen before and after that period of time.   Byers urges all Mississippians to take the threat of flu very seriously and get vaccinated now.  “Some other things you can do to help protect yourself,” he said “wash your hands frequently; if you are sick, you need to stay home; and if you very ill, you need to see your doctor. But, again, the single best way you can protect yourself and your family is by getting a flu vaccination.”

There are several different flu vaccine products available this year.  Check with your provider to see which is best for you.
