Doctor On Call: Flu Prevention

At this point in the middle of the 2019-2020 flu season, Hamilton County has seen close to 100 hospitalizations. That means you can still get sick, and especially for those with higher risk, it can significantly impact your health. How can you help to prevent the flu? Getting your flu shot is obviously the best way, but who should get one and when? And what about people with egg allergies?

What are the symptoms of the flu and what should you do if you experience them? Michelle Wiedemann MD, a family medicine specialist with TriHealth answers these questions in this segment of TriHealth’s Doctor On Call.

Doctor on Call is a segment in partnership with WCPO-TV featuring TriHealth physicians answering medical questions submitted by viewers to WCPO. You can submit a question here.
