Flu Prevention

The most recent Centers for Disease Control (CDC) report for the 2014-2015 flu season shows high levels of flu activity in about half of the country. Activity is expected to continue for several weeks. Most of the northeast has yet to experience the full brunt of the flu season. If you have not been vaccinated yet this season, get your flu vaccine now.

The CDC recommends an annual flu vaccine for everyone 6 months and older. So far this flu season most of the H3N2 flu viruses circulating are "drifted" or different from the H3N2 vaccine virus; suggesting that the vaccine’s ability to protect against those viruses may be reduced. The CDC continues to recommend flu vaccination because the vaccine can still prevent infection and also prevent serious flu-related complications in many people.

Benefits of flu shots:

  • Reductions in illnesses.
  • Fewer visits to healthcare providers.
  • Fewer days of missed work or school.
  • Vaccination also prevents flu-related hospitalizations and deaths.

Anyone who has not gotten vaccinated yet this season should do so now. According to the CDC, this includes people who may already have gotten the flu this season because flu vaccines protect against three or four different viruses. There often are two waves of flu activity during a season, the second wave is often caused by an influenza B virus.

Free Flu Shots Available at SU Health Services

The clinics are all scheduled from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm and will be held on the following days: January 14, January 15, January 21, January 22, January 28 and January 29.There is no appointment necessary for these clinics. The vaccine is FREE, you must have your SU/SUNY-ESF ID card with you.

So, you think you have the stomach bug?

Norovirus (commonly known as the Stomach Bug) is a very contagious virus. You can get norovirus from an infected person, contaminated food or water, or by touching contaminated surfaces. The virus causes your stomach or intestines or both to get inflamed (acute gastroenteritis). This leads you to have stomach pain, nausea, and diarrhea and to throw up.

The best way to help prevent norovirus is to practice proper hand washing and general cleanliness.

Ebola Information

Q: What precautions is Syracuse University Health Services taking regarding Ebola on campus?

A: SU Health Services has taken a proactive role since the beginning of the semester on precautions regarding Ebola.  Per CDC protocol, we are screening all patients at check-in to see if they have traveled to West Africa within the past 21 days.  Health Services is in constant communication with relevant internal offices to coordinate ongoing prevention efforts.  We also receive continued guidance from the Onondaga County Department of Health, New York State Department of Health and the Center for Disease Control.

Q: What if a student presents to Health Services who has traveled to West Africa in the past 21 days?

A: The patient will immediately be separated in a private room with its own bathroom, proper infection prevention and control measures will be utilized; standard, contact, and droplet precautions are recommended and our Medical Director will notify our local health department immediately if Ebola is suspected.

Q: How is Ebola transmitted?

A: Ebola is not a food-, water-, or air-borne illness. The virus is transmitted through:

  • direct contact with the blood or bodily fluids of an infected symptomatic person; for the virus to be transmitted, an individual would have to have direct contact with an individual who is experiencing symptoms
  • exposure to needles, medical equipment, or other objects that have been contaminated with infected secretions
  • exposure to infected animals (through blood, fluids, or meat)

Q: What can I do to protect myself from contracting infectious diseases like Ebola?

A: Ebola poses little risk to the US general population and is not contagious until symptoms appear. It is spread through direct contact with blood or body fluids (such as urine, saliva, sweat, feces, vomit, and semen) of an infected person, or with objects like needles that have been contaminated with the virus. This includes through intimate contact, such as sex, since Ebola can still be found in semen for 7 weeks after a person has recovered.

It is always good to avoid contact with anyone who is sick, especially with fever. Washing your hands frequently and always prior to touching your face or handling food. Use soap and water if available and use hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available. Doing so can help you prevent getting sick from many different illnesses.

 Q: Where can I obtain more information?

A: Click on the following link: http://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/page/advice-for-colleges-universities-and-students-about-ebola-in-west-africa for detailed information from the CDC.
