At Home Care Providers Booth at Greenfield Flu Clinic

Common Flu Symptoms:

  • Headaches
  • Cough
  • Sore Throat
  • Fever / Chills
  • Muscle / Body Aches
  • Vomiting / Diarrhea
  • Fatigue

As with all types of sickness, the signs and symptoms manifest in everyone differently. It is important for those who are providing at home care services know that most people do not exhibit each and every symptom. Rather, two, three, or four symptoms may sometimes be present. Symptoms often appear differently in children than in adults. For example, children develop nausea, vomiting and diarrhea more often than adults.

Citizens At High-Risk For Flu In Greenfield & Throughout Wisconsin

The people who are most at risk for getting the flu are people with compromised immune systems. No matter the reason, a compromised immune system will open up your susceptibility to all types of malaise.

  • People aged 65+ years are at higher risk of contracting the flu. Their bodies aren’t as responsive to outside stimuli as when they were younger.
  • Children have not had the time to develop fully-functional immune systems, and, as such, are at higher risk of getting the flu.
  • Pregnant women’s bodies are using their energy to support their child, produce milk, and respond to the changes their bodies are undergoing. In order to compensate, their immune systems are lowered.
  • People with immune system diseases are more susceptible to contracting the flu because their bodies cannot produce enough antibodies to fight it off as a result of their sicknesses.
  • Certain medications (such as Humira and Prednisone) can lower a person’s ability to fight off sickness.

Greenfield High Grove Senior Apartments Where Care Providers Attended Flu ClinicIt is advised for elderly citizens, children, pregnant women, people with immune system diseases, and people on certain medications to get a flu shot in order to mitigate their risk.  It is also important for those providing at home care services to get a flu shot as well.
