Influenza Season Continues with Widespread Activity in Maine

Influenza activity remains elevated and widespread in Maine and throughout the United States. Influenza should continue to be considered as a possible diagnosis for patients with influenza-like illness, including a fever of 100F or higher and a cough or sore throat. Maine CDC recommends rapid antiviral treatment of high-risk patients with suspected influenza.

With sustained influenza activity, it is not too late to get vaccinated for the 2018-19 influenza season. Vaccination can reduce illness and prevent hospitalizations and death.
