2017-2018 Flu Season Notes

Our 2017 Flu Clinic as usual was a great success.  It ran smoothly and was right on schedule with a total of 34 employees receiving the flu vaccine. If you were scheduled to receive the vaccine, but for some reason were unable to you may still get your vaccine by contacting Corporate Health Center and making an appointment. Be sure to bring a completed consent form with you.  And make sure to have them bill the Diocese. (If you have misplaced your consent form, please contact Angie Cannady for a new one.  Please note: where it asks for your social security number, you need only to put in the last 4 digits of your social security number.

A special thanks to the nurses, Maureen & Marie of Corporate Health.  They did a great job giving the vaccine – and no one even felt a pinch!

Remember to be conscientious about washing your hands, and when coughing be sure to cover your mouth with a tissue or cough into your elbow. 

A few more reminders about healthy habits...

To keep healthy during the flu season (and all year) it is good practice to:

#1:  Disinfect common surfaces (e.g., your desk, keyboard, telephone, and the pen you chew on constantly!). Viruses that cause a cold and flu can last on surfaces for up to 72 hours.

#2:  Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth, especially when you have a cold.

#3:  Help strengthen your immune system with the right foods:  probiotics from yogurt and antioxidants from fruits, vegetables and whole grains.

Let’s have a good start to this season by being conscientious, and hopefully we will have a healthy winter!!
