How to avoid the diarrhea that can happen while traveling in the U.S.
It’s the flu season, and your flu shot may be the most important thing you have this season.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued an alert for travelers who may be infected with the H1N1 flu virus, warning that some of the flu shots you receive may contain small amounts of H1NB1.
If you are vaccinated for the H3N2 flu, you will likely not be exposed to the virus.
But if you have received a flu shot before, you might be more vulnerable to H1NSM.
The H1NA2 strain of the H2N2 virus is the same one that causes the flu and has a 50% higher chance of causing illness.
“H1N2 influenza is one of the most serious and deadly influenza viruses, and while some people will recover, the majority of people will not,” CDC Director Dr. Thomas Frieden said in a statement.
“It is important that you have the best chance of surviving this pandemic.”
If you do get the flu, your best chance is to keep the flu vaccine at your home.
The CDC recommends that you use a personal protective equipment (PPE) bag and wear it to all activities.
“The H1NP strains have been found to be the highest-risk strains of the influenza virus,” the CDC said.
“These strains are known to be highly contagious and are the most common circulating in the United States.
If your primary health care provider doesn’t recommend use of a PPE bag, contact your primary care provider for advice on how to wear a PEO.”
If your PPE is not safe to wear, you may want to wear one.
“If you are wearing a PEP, wear the PEP in an upright position,” the agency said.
If you have a family member or friend who has the H5N2 strain, you should consider wearing one if you can.
“Your health care professional should be able to provide you with a personal PPE with a tight fitting mesh pouch for easy packing and transport,” the HHC said.
