Health Advisory related to the current circulating influenza strain
Influenza season has begun and this year’s flu season may be more severe.   The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has issued a Health Advisory related to the current circulating influenza strain. Influenza A (H3N2) has been reported as the most frequent strain.   Historically, Influenza A (H3N2) is known to cause increased hospitalization and death in very young children, the elderly, and individuals that have chronic medical conditions. The Wisconsin State Lab of Hygiene is also observing this pattern. This year’s vaccine has a component of H3N2, but since production of the flu vaccine, there has been increased evidence that the H3N2 virus is changing. It is not uncommon for a virus to change. Over half of the viruses tested to date show a genetic mutation. Therefore, the vaccine is currently not a perfect match for all of the H3N2 viruses.
CDC continues to encourage all individuals over the age of six months to receive the influenza vaccine if not currently vaccinated. The vaccine will still protect against the unchanged strain of H3N2 viruses, as well as 2 or 3 additional influenza strains, depending on which immunization is received. It is also believed that there will be some cross-protection for the genetically different H3N2 virus which may help to decrease the severity should an individual become infected with this changed strain.
Adams County Public Health urges you to protect yourself and others. It is not too late to get immunized. Flu shots are available locally at Mound View Hospital and Clinic (call 608-339-8494 for appointment), at your local Shopko Hometown Pharmacy (ages 6 and older), Riverview Family Clinic Lakes Office (call 715-325-8300 for appointment), or you may check with your personal physician. Families are encouraged to speak with their child’s primary care provider to determine which immunization is age appropriate. In addition, use thorough hand washing with soap and water for a minimum of 20 seconds (the amount of time it takes to sing the “Happy Birthday” song twice) or an approved hand sanitizer. Cover your cough or sneezes with a tissue or cough/sneeze into your inner arm. Dispose of tissues promptly and wash your hands. Practice social distancing by staying away from others who are ill or staying home when you are ill. You should be free of a fever for 24 hours without the use of Tylenol, Advil, etc., before returning to school or work.
If you are at risk for complications from influenza, contact your doctor right away if you develop a sudden onset of fever, chills, cough, sore throat, headache and/ or body aches. Prescription antiviral medications, Tamiflu (Oseltamivir) and Relenza (Zanamivir), are effective against the flu if started within 48 hours of symptom onset.
For questions about influenza, the influenza vaccine, or how it may affect you, please contact your doctor for additional information.
Are You Ready for Winter?
“Get an emergency kit in your car. It could save your life”
Governor Scott Walker has declared November 10-14, 2014 as Winter Awareness Week in Wisconsin.   The annual campaign, sponsored by Wisconsin Emergency Management (WEM), its ReadyWisconsin preparedness program and NOAA’s National Weather Service (NWS), is to remind people to be prepared for winter conditions that could threaten their safety. 
“The number one thing to do: make sure you have an emergency supply kit in your car – it could save your life,” says Brian Satula, Wisconsin Emergency Management Administrator
 Winter storms are considered deceptive killers because most deaths are indirectly related to the storm. For example, in the last five years Wisconsin has averaged 18,000 motor vehicle crashes during winter months. On average, 45 people are killed each year and more than 4700 injured on icy or snow-covered roads.

Survivors of Suicide Loss
For some people, the word “Suicide” hits too close to home. Those individuals know first-hand what a suicide has meant. They are those who remain, the “Survivors of Suicide Loss”. Each year, there are over 700 suicides in Wisconsin. Just think about the number of people impacted by this…parents, children, siblings, friends, co-workers…all that are “left behind”.   Since 1999, Congress has designated a day for healing and support for those affected by loss. National Survivors of Suicide Day is held on the Saturday before Thanksgiving. This year, that date is November 22, 2014.

Smoking and Pregnancy
In August, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services released the Public Health Profiles, Wisconsin 2012. The data, published annually, profiles important aspects of public health for the state as a whole and for each of the 72 counties. Of particular interest is the alarming rate of maternal tobacco use. In 2012, 42% of Adams County pregnant women reported smoking during or in the three months prior to their pregnancy, over two times greater than the 19% reported for the state of Wisconsin.
