Rattlesnakes Alert

June 25, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – California Poison Control System (CPCS) (http://www.calpoison.org) reminds Californians that with warm weather, rattlesnakes are more likely to be found on hiking trails and sunning in rural areas. Even baby rattlesnakes possess dangerous venom as soon as they hatch.

 

A rattlesnake bite can produce painful swelling, bruising, tissue destruction, bleeding problems and, in rare cases, can be fatal. Most bites occur between the months of April and October. (Click this link to hear the sound a rattlesnake makes (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/22/Rattlesnake.ogg).

 

Some rattlesnake bite prevention tips include:

  • Wear boots and long pants when hiking.
  • Stay on trails when hiking, away from underbrush and tall weeds.
  • Do not touch or disturb a snake, even if it appears dead.
  • Carefully inspect logs or rocks before sitting on them.
  • Never hike alone in remote areas. Always have someone with you who can assist in an emergency.
  • Teach children to respect snakes and to leave them alone!

Flu Season & Vaccination Locations BCPH

Lab Confirmed Flu Cases Mark The Start of Flu Season in Butte County | Butte County Public Health

Flu activity is on the rise in Butte County with more than 16 lab confirmed flu cases reported by local healthcare providers. Since December 1st, severe flu cases have led to four hospitalizations in Butte County. The flu vaccine is still available at many pharmacies and clinics.
Flu season typically peaks in January or February and can last as late as May. For millions of people each year, symptoms of flu illness can vary from mild to severe, including: fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, muscle aches, and fatigue. Severe flu complications can lead to hospitalization and sometimes even death. Flu viruses are constantly changing from one season to the next. Vaccines released for this year’s flu are not as well matched as vaccines in the past, but are still an important step in protecting you and your loved ones and may reduce the severity of flu symptoms.
http://flushot.healthmap.org

In addition to getting vaccinated, you and your family can help prevent spreading the flu by:
- Avoiding close contact with sick people
- Covering your nose and mouth with a tissue or your sleeve when you cough or sneeze
- Washing your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer
- NOT touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Staying home from work or school if you have flu like symptoms

 

A free flu vaccination clinic will be offered by the Butte County Public Health Department (BCPHD) on Tuesday, January 27, from 2:00-4:00pm at 202 Mira Loma Drive in Oroville.
No appointments are necessary. Vaccines are available for people 6 months of age and older, including pregnant women. Both the flu shot and nasal spray vaccine (FluMist) will be available.
