Flu Season is Here

 

Influenza (seasonal flu) activity is currently elevated in San Diego. The SHC, as well as all off-campus urgent care facilities are impacted seeing patients with suspected or confirmed flu. The CDC states that most people with influenza do not need to be seen by a medical provider, and can be safely treated at home with rest, fluids, and over-the-counter medications. If you have flu symptoms, you are encouraged to self-isolate for at least 24 hours after fever is gone (temperature under 100 without the use of a fever-reducing medicine such as Tylenol).

Anyone with severe symptoms, or who has any chronic medical condition, may require a medical evaluation. Click below for more information about:
