H 1 N 1 INFLUENZA Walsh County Health District SHORT SHOTS HINI flu is an infection of the nose, Symptoms of an H 1N 1 infection include: Fever Cough Sore throat Runny nose or stuffy nose Body aches Headache Chills Fatigue Some people have also had nausea and throat and lungs. vomiting A person sick with H1NI flu can spread the virus 1 day before getting sick to 5-7 days after getting sicL (This could be longer in some people, especially children and people with weak immune systems. How can you protect yourself from H IN1 ? Wash your hands with soap and water frequently. Use of alcohol based hand sanitizers is also effective. Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Stay away from sick people Keep commonly touched surfaces clean by using household disinfectants. (Phones, keyboards, doorknobs, faucet han- dles, bathroom surfaces, etc). Get vaccinated when the vaccine becomes available. And, finally, the most important piece of advice I can give you: If you have a fever with cough, a fever with sore throat, or feel generally achy and sick--stay home from school, stay home from work, and stay home from social gatherings. While most people who get the H1N1 flu will recover, som people will get sick enough to be hospitalized and a few pen-" pie will die. Don't be the person who brought the flu to work or school.
