It’s here…

Northern Maine got its first measurable snow of the season yesterday, and the flu. The first Influenza A infection of the season wasn’t actually up north, but in Kennebec county according to the CDC.

The CDC sent out a release yesterday confirming that an elderly individual had come down with the flu. He reportedly had not been traveling recently and is currently recovering at home. The patient was seeing a doctor for multiple underlying heath conditions and was not at the time vaccinated.

It may seen early for the flu, however it’s no uncommon for folks to come down with the virus in October. Seasonal flu usually peaks December through February.

The best way to prevent getting the flu is by getting a flu shot. It’s kind of a no-brainer. The flu vaccine typically prevents three different strains of flu. However, this year there’s a different shot available known as the quadrivalent vaccine. This shot will protect you from four different flu strains that seem to be circulating.
