ARC Helps Austin Prepare for Flu Season

As flu activity has elevated nationally, the CDC is urging folks to take the proper steps to protect themselves.

“Here in Austin and our clinic we’ve been seeing an increase the past couple of weeks,” Dr. Jerry Fincken, DO, ARC Far West, told Austin’s Fox 7 News.

“Hand washing is the best way to protect yourself for sure,” advised Dr. Fincken. He added that using a face mask is also helpful because these viruses are aerosolized.

It’s not too late to vaccinate

Flu season can last well into the spring in Texas, so it’s not too late to get your vaccination. If you haven’t received your flu vaccine yet, make an appointment today to get vaccinated.
