(Bangor, Maine) — The Maine Center for Disease Control & Prevention is reporting influenza activity in Maine is widespread with confirmed cases in all counties. However, there are several steps Mainers can take to protect themselves against the flu, including knowing which symptoms indicate a need to contact their primary care provider.
“We are still urging people six months and older to get vaccinated against the flu,” says Kristopher O’Connell, DO, a primary care physician at EMMC Family Medicine in Hampden. “In addition, there are some basic steps you can take to prevent the spread of the flu, such as washing your hands, covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your sleeve, and staying home if you’re sick.”
Dr. O’Connell also reminds those who are around people at a higher risk of complication from influenza, such as seniors and young children, to be even more mindful of taking precautions.
“If you are having symptoms such as a cough or sore throat, high fever, muscle aches, or fatigue that started less than 48 hours ago, make sure to contact your primary care provider,” adds Dr. O’Connell. “There are medications that can help lessen the severity and duration of the flu if started early.”
