Are You at High Risk for Serious Illness from Flu?

Some people are at high risk for serious flu complications, including young children, older people, pregnant women and people with certain health conditions. Flu vaccination and the correct use of influenza antiviral medications is very important for those people.
The Flu Can Be Serious
Influenza, commonly called the "flu," is a contagious viral infection that mostly affects the respiratory system — your nose, throat and lungs. Symptoms of the flu can include fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue. Some people may also have vomiting and diarrhea.

MASS SHOOTINGS

SAN ANTONIO — Every single case involving a horrific mass shooting in this country in recent years has had one thing in common: At least one person knew the perpetrator struggled with a mental illness. Now, a new mobile application seeks to prevent another such tragedy from happening by putting vital information about mental illness — including signs and symptoms and how to seek help — right in people’s hands. The Center for Health Care Services on Wednesday unveiled Mental Health & You (MHU), an innovative crisis intervention tool that seeks to educate the public about mental illness and provide local and national resources for early intervention and treatment. “We know that one in four people will be diagnosed with a mental illness in this country, but most go untreated,” said Leon Evans, executive director of the center who was the brainchild behind the new app. “We know that people with mental illness are more likely to be victims of violent crime, rather than perpetrators of it.”
