What's Going Around - Week of December 10, 2017
(WHAM) - Here is what's going around for the week of December 10, 2017.
Dr. David Carlson from UR Medicine Urgent Care in Newark is treating viral upper respiratory infections.
Dr. Carlson wants to remind patients that it is still not too late to get protected with a seasonal flu shot.
Dr. Carolyn Stern from UR Medicine Urgent Care in Henrietta is treating cases of the flu, upset stomachs and respiratory syncytial virus - or RSV.
Dr. Stern said to cover your cough and stay at least three feet away from those who are coughing.
Patients should also ask their doctor about your vitamin D level. People who have low vitamin D levels are more susceptible to upper respiratory infections and at risk for broken bones if they fall.
Your doctor or healthcare provider can give you the best advice.
