The flu is a respiratory infection that can be caused by influenza viruses.

In North America, flu often strikes between October and April. Most who get the flu will recover within 7 to 10 days, but some are at risk of developing complications such as pneumonia.

The flu usually takes 1 to 4 days to incubate in humans. Those infected can become contagious before symptoms appear, often just the day after the virus enters the body. Adults can remain infectious for about 5 to 7 days, while young children may remain infectious for a few days longer.

Symptoms can include:

• Headaches
• Chills
• Coughing
• Fever
• Muscle aches
• Nausea
• Vomiting
• Diarrhea

If you suspect that you may have the flu, stay home, get rest and plenty of fluids, and contact your physician or local pharmacist for more information.

To help protect your body and loved ones, you may want to consider getting the annual flu shot!

In Canada, there are many kinds of ticks that we must watch out for. Ticks have the ability to spread infection to humans, pets and various wildlife, which is why it is so important to be vigilant and practice tick safety and prevention during tick season.

Lyme Disease is an inflammatory inflection that can spread to humans through tick bites, most commonly from the “Black-Legged” or “Deer Tick. Lyme Disease progresses through 3 stages and is treatable, but becomes more difficult to diagnose and treat as time passes.

The best way to keep yourself, loved ones and pets safe is through preventative action and learning more about Lyme Disease. https://bit.ly/3cWI5Vf

Knowing the facts about naloxone may help to save a life. Here is what you need to know…

• Naloxone is a drug that acts rapidly to temporarily reverse the effects of an opioid overdose. It can restore breathing within two to five minutes of being administered.
• While naloxone is active in the body for only 20 to 90 minutes, the effects of most opioids can last longer. Because of this, you should always call for help.
• Naloxone is safe for all ages and only works if opioids are in your system.
• In Canada, naloxone is available in two types of take-home kits. One is a nasal spray and the other is an injectable. They are available at most pharmacies with no prescription required.
• Naloxone kits do expire, which is why they should be replaced after 18 to 24 months.

For more information about naloxone, speak with your local PharmaChoice pharmacist. Take-home naloxone kits are available without a prescription and can be picked up at most pharmacies or local health authorities. https://bit.ly/3hOegIG

The best way to prevent Lyme Disease is to avoid being bitten by a tick. These ticks are generally found near grassy and wooded areas with trees, shrubs and piles of leaves. Use these tips when heading outside in an area where ticks can be found:

• Use bug spray with DEET or icaridin
• Wear close-toe shoes, long sleeves and pants
• Walk on pathways

After being outside, check yourself, children, gear, and pets for ticks. Bathe when you arrive home and put clothes into a dryer for 10-20 minutes.

If someone you know suffers from addiction, it could put them at an increased risk of an overdose. It's important that you educate yourself on the steps to take in case of an emergency due to an overdose. Today is International Overdose Day, take a few minutes to learn the steps to take in case of an emergency due to an overdose.

A person may have overdosed if:

- They can't be woken and/or don't respond to pain
- They are not breathing or are breathing very slowly
- Their lips, gums and fingertips are turning blue or purple
- They are making an unusual gurgling or loud snoring sound
- Their pupils are very small

If someone is overdosing, call 911 immediately. If you suspect that their overdose is due to opioids or other street drugs, a naloxone kit may be used until help arrives. http://bit.ly/2Y32bcl
