The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is reporting that while influenza (the flu) activity remains low, sporadic infections are beginning to occur throughout much of the country.


The flu can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death. As such, the CDC continues to recommend that everyone 6 months and older should get a flu vaccine each year.


Influenza and pneumococcal vaccines are still available without an appointment from Foxhall Internists Immunization Clinic, Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon and 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. (the office is closed from 12 noon to 1 p.m.). The walk-in clinic is located in Suite 304, 3301 New Mexico Avenue, NW, in Washington, DC. For additional information, please call (202) 362-4467.


The American Diabetes Association estimates that every 17 seconds, someone is diagnosed with diabetes.


A new report from the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) finds that you can reduce your risk of diabetes by as much as 80% by making five lifestyle changes:

  1. Maintain a healthy weight.
  2. Exercise 20 minutes a day; brisk walking is an excellent option.
  3. Eat more fiber and whole grains.
  4. Don't smoke.
  5. Reduce consumption of alcohol; no more than one drink a day for women, and no more than two drinks a day for men.
