We seem to be seeing an increase in flu numbers again. You’ll notice that our flu B numbers in particular are rising. This is a normal trend - usually we see a peak in flu A numbers followed by a peak in flu B numbers. Oneida county would like to remind residents if you have sudden onset of fever, body aches, fatigue, cough, sore throat, and/or runny nose try and see your health care provider. Tamiflu works best when given within 48 hours of symptoms onset.
Flu vaccine is available at the Oneida County Health Department. The cost is $25.00 per shot. We accept many different insurance plans. Please call 315-798-5747 to schedule an appointment and for more information.
