The CDC said as many as 42.9 million cases of influenza have been reported from Oct. 1, 2018 to May 4, 2019 resulting in 20.1 million medical visits and 647,000 hospitalizations. As many as 61,200 deaths attributed to the flu were reported since last year. The current guidelines recommend the flu vaccinations should be offered by the end of October. It takes about two week for the body to develop protection against the flu. “Optimally, vaccination should occur before onset of influenza activity in the community,” the CDC noted. “However, because timing of the onset, peak, and decline of influenza activity varies, the ideal time to start vaccinating cannot be predicted each season.” Therefore it is now time to receive the flu vaccine
Dr. Gilli and the staff would like to thank you for the positive reviews on Google, Healthgrades, and Yelp.
After over 25 years splitting my time at Kern Medical and Mesa West Medical, I have decided to part ways with Kern Medical as of July 1st. I will be putting all my energy into Mesa West Medical and start seeing patients full time at Mesa West Medical as on July 1st. I will seeing patients from 8 am five days a week. Kevin Nelson will be turning 65 later this year and has decided to retire at the end of this year. He will be moving to Grover Beach with his wife Gail. Between now and the end of the year, Kevin will be working only three days a week. - William Gilli, M.D.
