Flu season has arrived in Colorado

Flu season has arrived in Colorado

The Cherokee County Health Department will begin its flu immunization clinics on October 4.

Just days into the fall season and health officials in Colorado are predicting a very active flu season.

"The CDC recommends that the shots be given as soon as the vaccine is available", said Dr. Shanon Gower, pharmacist for Cox Drug.

This flu season, Alberta Health Services (AHS) will not be offering the nasal spray option. Once you are vaccinated, it takes about two weeks for the antibodies to develop in your body to become an effective defense against the virus. Many others may have had the virus, but avoided hospitalization. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists also agrees that the flu vaccine in prenatal care is very important as it protects the mother and the child from the flu and will be good for newborns as they can not be vaccinated before six months. The health department offers them during regular walk-in clinics Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 11:30 a.m.to 4:30 p.m., 1930 Ninth Avenue. You should have your insurance card with you. This study causes the public to reconsider vaccination in pregnant women but the aim was to show the limitations and why the flu vaccine is recommended during pregnancy. Others will be charged $25. Additionally, for our older community members who are among those most at risk, a "high-dose" vaccine is available.

"The flu can really knock you down and out for the count", said Mark Plagge, 65, of Cape May Court House, "so it's good to stay healthy". Flu vaccines protect against the three or four viruses (depending on vaccine) that research suggests will be most common.

"We often build our vaccine based on what happens in Australia", Gower said.
