Influenza Activity Update for 2017/2018 Season

Here is some information from the County of San Diego Health and Human Services Agency: 

Brief Update. Influenza activity is increasing in San Diego County, as well as nationally. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has warned that this may be a severe influenza season. There have been no local school-based outbreaks so far this season, but outbreaks can occur and they can be prevented by vaccination and good hygiene. Please promote influenza vaccine to school staff, students, and families. It is not too late to receive flu vaccines because peak influenza activity often persists into late winter and early spring.

More info can be found on the Communicable Diseases web page.
