Winter Illnesses

winter illnesses

We at On Call Medical Clinic want to make you aware of some common winter illnesses that we all need to be aware are present.


You can help prevent colds by washing your hands regularly. This destroys bugs that you may have picked up from touching surfaces used by other people, such as light switches and door handles.

It’s also important to keep the house and any household items such as cups, glasses and towels clean, especially if someone in your house is ill.

Sore Throat

Sore throats are common in winter and are almost always caused by viral infections. There’s some evidence that changes in temperature, such as going from a warm, centrally heated room to the icy outdoors, can also affect the throat.


Cold air is a major trigger of asthma symptoms such as wheezing and shortness of breath. People with asthma should be especially careful in winter.


Also known as the winter vomiting bug, norovirus is an extremely infectious stomach bug. It can strike all year round, but is more common in winter and in places such as hotels and schools. The illness is unpleasant, but it’s usually over within a couple of days.

Cold Sores

Most of us recognize that cold sores are a sign that we’re run down or under stress. While there’s no cure for cold sores, you can reduce the chances of getting one by looking after yourself through winter.

Heart Attacks

Heart attacks are more common in winter. This may be because cold snaps increase blood pressure and put more strain on the heart. Your heart also has to work harder to maintain body heat when it’s cold.


Flu is a major killer of vulnerable people. People aged 65 and over and people with long-term health conditions, including diabetes and kidney disease, are particularly at risk.

The best way to prevent getting flu is to have the flu jab (or flu nasal spray for children aged 2 to 18). The flu vaccine gives good protection against flu and lasts for one year.

We at On Call Medical Clinic hope that this information was of value to you. Please remember we are here 7 days a week to help you when those winter illnesses occur and your family doctor is not available.

Flu Prevention


We at On Call Medical know that Flu Season has arrived. We are available 7 days a week if you need us to help you when you have caught the flu. Below are some tips to help keep you flu free this year.

Get Vaccinated

Experts say the single best way to avoid the flu is to get the shot as soon as you can. The ideal time is early fall. But any time during the winter is fine if you haven’t already done it.

The vaccine is designed to protect against the flu strains health experts believe will be most widespread each season — for example, the H1N1 “swine flu.” Some vaccines work against three flu strains — you might hear them called trivalent. Others guard against four strains — doctors will call them quadrivalent.

Vaccine Types

The “shot” contains a dead virus. One kind that’s approved for people 6 months and older goes straight into the muscle. Another uses a smaller needle that only goes into the top layer of your skin. It’s available for people aged 18 to 64.

The nasal spray, FluMist, contains a live but weakened form of the virus. It’s approved for those between 2 and 49 who’s healthy, not allergic to the fly vaccine and not pregnant. It is not recommended for the 2016-2017 flu season.

Egg-free vaccines are for people between 18 and 49 who have severe egg allergies. If your allergy is severe, you should get the flu shot from a doctor who can treat a severe allergic reaction — either at your doctor’s office, a hospital, a clinic, or a health department. Many children with egg allergies are at risk for complications from the flu, so it’s important for them to get the flu shot.

Fluzone is a high-dose version for those 65 and older. It’s better at protecting an older person’s immune system.

There is a “needle-less” option for people 18-64 years old:  the jet injector vaccine with Afluria, which uses a tool and high pressure to deliver the vaccine.

Build a Germ Barrier

It’s easy to catch the flu. When a nearby sick person sneezes or coughs, they send out a spray of virus-laden droplets straight to your open mouth or nose.

You can also pick it up from touching a surface — like the restaurant table where a sick person dined before you. Flu germs can linger on places like tables, counters, desks, doorknobs, and faucets for up to 8 hours.8801

When you touch a germy surface and put your hands on your eyes, nose, or mouth, your fingers bring the virus right into your body.

Here are some tips that can help build a germ barrier

  • Wash your hands with warm water and soap every time you shake hands or touch a surface that might be germ-covered.
  • Carry an Alcohol-based hand sanitizer with you
  • Bring along disinfectant wipes to clean any surfaces you are about to touch
  • Take care not to touch your month, eyes, or nose without washing your hands first.

Take Care of Yourself

If you want your immune system to be in good enough shape to fight off the flu and other germs, you need to stay healthy.

  • Eat a balanced diet.
  • Exercise at least 4 days a week.
  • Get 7 to 9 hours of sleep a night.

All these will give your body the strength it needs to fend off an influenza attack.

We at On Call Medical hope these tips were helpful. Please remember we are here 7 days a week to help you through this flu season.
