Swine Flu Q & A

You’ve probably heard about swine flu already. We don’t currently have any cases in Utah, but it’s hard to predict how influenza will act. We are still seeing lots of cases of both Influenza A and B.
A good link to answer your questions about swine flu is here, at the http://www.cdc.gov website.
If your child has fever, chills, runny nose, cough or vomiting, it would be a good idea to have them come in to the office within the first 48 hours of illness so we can test them for influenza and possibly treat with antivirals. If it has been longer than 48 hours, you can watch them at home if they’re doing OK, or call for an appointment if you have concerns.
