Cold & Flu Season Worries State Poison Control Center

Overdose Risk Increases with Overuse of Medicines

Cold and flu season hits New Jersey hard as healthcare facilities around the state see a surge in flu-related visits and hospital admissions. Although OTC products sold in retail/chain pharmacies, supermarkets, convenience stores, and online help ease symptoms, these products do not treat illnesses like the common cold or flu. Anyone experiencing cold/flu symptoms should see their healthcare provider right away. Starting treatment quickly helps lower the risk for severe sickness, as well as, helping to stop the spread of these viruses to others. Symptoms can include but are not limited to fever, congestion/ runny nose, cough, sore throat, chills/sweats, headache, body aches, and tiredness. Getting a flu shot (flu vaccine) every year is the best way to protect you, loved ones and your community against flu illness.

“Our Environmental Center has become the premiere location for environmental education and nature appreciation. With the help of our partner groups, our dynamic schedule of events and activities will captivate all ages,” DiVincenzo said. “Walk in our woods, discover habitats, get pointers on gardening, learn about nature photography and much more. It’s all about nature and it’s all at our Environmental Center,” he added.
Events scheduled for February are as follows:
