2017-2018 Flu Season

Stamps Health Services has seen a significant rise in the number of cases of flu as students have returned to campus. Most of the United States is seeing widespread flu activity caused by influenza A (H3N2), a type of the flu that has been associated with more severe illness.

Due to a high demand for flu vaccine, Stamps Health Services has given its entire supply of flu vaccine and the vaccine is no longer available in our clinics or pharmacy. ​However, you can use CDC's Flu Vaccine Finder tool to find a convenient spot to get your flu shot. There is still time to get your flu shot, the best protection against the flu. While the shot doesn’t protect against all types of flu, it will prevent you from becoming seriously ill helping you get back to school, work, and your activities sooner.

Other ways to protect yourself and others include:

  • Avoiding close contact with people who are sick with the flu. If you have the flu, limit your contact with others as much as possible and stay home until you are fever free for at least 24 hours.
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you sneeze or cough. If you do not have a tissue, sneeze into crook of your elbow so you do not get the germs on your hands.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth – germs spread easily this way.
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects such as laptops and cell phones that may be contaminated with germs like the flu.

If you think you have the flu, stay home until you are symptom free for at least 24 hours and keep hydrated by drinking water or sports drinks. Antiviral medications, such as Tamiflu®, can help shorten the duration of symptoms if started early enough. A healthcare professional can determine if these types of medications are right for you. If you need to see a healthcare professional, contact Stamps Health Services for an appointment (404-894-1420).
