Swine Flu in Children

This has been an unusual virus but it does not appear to be spreading from person to person at this time.  The first case of H3N2 was reported to the federal CDC in late August after a boy under 5 from Indiana experienced a fever, cough, shortness of breath, diarrhea along with a sore throat. The young boy was hospitalized for treatment and has recovered from it.

The seasonal influenza activity remains low around the country with the arrival of seasonal flu season, the CDC says. The agency said earlier that this year’s vaccine, the same as last year’s vaccine, likely would not protect against the new swine strain.

If you work in healthcare be sure to wash your hands properly and protect yourself and your patients with fluid repelling medical scrubs.
