Flu Season is Here!

We have flu vaccine at no charge at the PCFC for our patients! Call 874-8982 for an appointment!

It’s that time of year–flu season is upon us. The CDC reports that’s 2.9% of outpatient visits involved flu-like illnesses during the week ending Nov 23, 2019 up from 2.5% the previous week and exceeding the 2.4% national baseline. To date, 9821 people across the country have tested positively for confirmed influenza virus since the end of September. Fourteen states, plus Puerto Rico have reported moderate to high virus activity in the past week. Maine is not included in this group but historically, flu comes late to Maine. If you have not yet received a flu shot, it’s not too late to do so! We have plenty of flu vaccine at the PCFC–call for an appointment. If you are not one of our patients, call 874-8982 to see if you qualify for services and can receive a dose of flu vaccine from us.

Remember, the best way to guard against and prevent the spread of flu:

  • Receive an annual flu vaccination.
  • Wash your hands frequently.
  • Cover your mouth and nose when coughing.
  • Cough into your elbow.
  • If you don’t feel well, stay home!
