Influenza A and B

Let me tell you this is some nasty stuff! Since I am on the SDSU faculty staff I get important mass e-mails and last week we got one from the clinic here in town regarding Influenza A and B. The e-mail read "We are seeing many cases of Influenza A and a few B. The Center of Disease Control has sent us an alert that the flu shot did NOT cover one of the strains of influenza. Pay close attention to your employees for high fevers, sorethroats, bodyaches, and cough." So no more then one day later I had one employee come down with it and was sent home for 5 days. The next day I had another one get it and she was also gone for 5 days. Then last Friday one of the girls in the main office got it and Sunday my dad got it. YUCK!! So just to be safe I called our doctor last night and she gave Jon, Trevor and I a perscription for some medication to protect us from not getting it. The prescription is for 10 days so hopefully then we will be safe.


PS....today is the big day for Trevor's pictures. The whole deal is over so he is the last one the photographer is going to see, cross your fingers they turn out good or Trevor is good for that matter.
