Influenza season hitting heavy

’Tis the season for the sniffles. Only this fall, along with those sniffles you have an increased risk of running a fever, or worse.

According to Pam Fitzgerald, manager of Sakakawea Hazen and Beulah Clinics, the number of people coming through the clinic doors has been steady thanks to the seasonal influenza as well as the H1N1 virus. In fact, those planning to schedule appointments for regular checkups such as annual physical examinations might want to hold off.
