2017 Influenza Season Update
Influenza cases in Oregon have increased dramatically in the last few weeks. We are getting a much earlier start to the flu season in comparison to last year. As of January 2017, Oregon was one of five states with the highest numbers of influenza-like illness activity in the US. The most frequently identified subtype of influenza currently is Influenza A. Preliminary CDC reports suggest that this year's flu vaccine is a good match for the most commonly seen influenza subtype although true vaccine efficacy is usually not known until later in the season.

The best way to protect yourself from getting the flu illness and to prevent flu-related hospitalizations is to get vaccinated. It's not too late! Please drop by JBT Health & Wellness during clinic hours to get your flu vaccine. Students, except those in the School of Nursing, should complete their Influenza Survey on ReadySet prior to receiving their flu vaccine.
If you think you have the flu (fevers, cough, sore throat, runny nose, body aches, headaches, fatigue, or vomiting and diarrhea), please call JBT Health & Wellness Center at 503-494-8665 for medical consultation. Prompt treatment with influenza antiviral drugs is recommended within 72 hours of symptoms for people who are very sick or at high risk of complications, or for people at high risk of getting the flu illness.
