CDC, health department recommends getting flu shot now

CDC, health department recommends getting flu shot now

Flu season has arrived. In the 2015-16 flu season, there were 59 deaths linked to influenza. They are experiencing one of the worst flu outbreaks they've ever had.

He says flu is a laid term for influenza because, really, influenza is more serious. "It makes it very difficult to come up with hard data about what's going on".

"We are fortunate to have a more comprehensive flu vaccination programme than Australia or England, but the benefits may only be realised if a high proportion of the groups who can get the vaccine actually take up the offer". Don't be that person in class who's wheezing and coughing up a storm.

When should I get the vaccine?

The influenza virus has yet to hit the Northern Hemisphere, but flu vaccine season is already in full swing, with banners outside pharmacies urging: "Get Your Flu Shot Now". "And I don't think it's antivaccine to want your vaccine program to be the best that it can be", she adds. Receiving a flu shot is one of the best ways to help protect you and your family from getting sick. Flu season usually begins in October, but can begin as early as September and can last well into March. "With increase cases of flu during these months it's important to be vaccinated to protect yourself from the flu". Children and older people are encouraged to get the shot in particular. "Any side effects are minor and last a very short time, and contrary to what some believe, you can not get the flu as a result of getting vaccinated".

"Vaccination is the most effective thing we can do to reduce the impact of flu on individuals and in the community each year".

About 31,500 Duke employees received a vaccine or an exemption through Duke last season. But HA's head is highly mutable, which is why vaccinemakers must come up with a new formula every year. Stevens said this should act as a warning to the NHS and underlined the need to get as many people as possible vaccinated.

None so far reported in IN, but as we inch closer to October, you'll be hearing your physicians and pharmacists asking you, "Do you want to get your flu shot?"

Annual flu shots are effective.

Ultimately, the holy grail would be a vaccine that tackled all types of flu virus by targeting the part of it that is universal to them all.

And the elderly in care homes are particularly vulnerable to flu.
