Cold or Flu, What to Do?

Posted on Feb 19, 2013 in Wellness

Feeling under the weather? Find out if it’s a cold or the flu and talk to your doctor about the influenza shot if you haven’t received the vaccine yet this season.

Vaccination is the best way to prevent catching and spreading influenza. Patients interested in receiving a flu shot should call their doctor’s office directly.

Call your doctor’s office before coming in for an appointment if you or a loved one have flu-like symptoms (fever, cough, chills, sore throat, muscle aches, runny nose, feeling lousy all over).
