March 12, 2018 – Above you’ll see the most recent North Carolina state flu numbers – 3 straight weeks showing a steady drop in likely cases of influenza.

That’s good news. How about more good news?

A Big Drop in Flu Cases at Raleigh Children & Adolescents Medicine Too

And at our office, we’ve seen a similar trend of fewer cases of flu.

Only seven (7) positive flu tests last week – that is only one per day which is a lot less than most weeks during the month of February.

Yeah March! That is more good news.

Sports and Summer Camp Physicals

The sudden drop in flu cases has created an unexpected and atypical wellness opportunity in March.

If your child needs a physical for summer camp or for school next year, don’t go to Urgent Care or (ugh) Minute Clinic.

Give your pediatrician a call.

Why see your regular pediatrician?

  • This is the doctor who is an expert in pediatrics who already knows your child
  • This is the doctor who has all your child’s medical records and who knows which vaccines they’ve had and which vaccines they need
  • The doctor who has seen them before with illness and will be there to see them if they get sick later

Whenever possible, keep your child’s healthcare in one place –  at your pediatric medical home – Raleigh Children & Adolescents Medicine

Give us a call 919-781-7490 and get that taken care of now.
