Care home workers to be offered free flu jab

Care home workers to be offered free flu jab

"If you have not gotten your flu shot yet, don't delay, and be sure to make a plan to get one soon". According to CDC, the yearly flu vaccine is the first and most important step in guarding yourself against the flu viruses. But Herlihy said even healthy adults - who are better able to shrug off the flu - should get vaccinated because it will help prevent the spread of the virus to the vulnerable populations. Of the 219 flu deaths reported in the state during the 2016-17 season, more than 150 cases involved a person 65 or older. The vaccine protects against several flu strains. All children aged two to eight years are also being offered protection with a simple nasal spray flu vaccine - so no needle.

To find an influenza immunization clinic or provider near you, watch for local announcements on dates and times in your community; or contact your local public health centre, physician office or pharmacy.

The hope is that it will create a safety net around those children in the hospital who have already dealt with health issues and carry on to protect them after they get out of the hospital.

"In the United States, millions of people get sick, hundreds of thousands are hospitalized and tragically thousands or tens of thousands die from flu each year", Dr. Jernigan said in a recent interview.

Sir Bruce said: "Many people are very anxious that this winter will be particularly hard - the thing that I worry about most is that we have an outbreak of flu or an outbreak of norovirus which puts an added strain on the NHS service". "Getting vaccinated today will help protect you and your family now and for the rest of the influenza season".

NHS England, Public Health England, the Department of Health and NHS Improvement have unveiled a range of measures meant to boost the uptake of flu vaccinations among health and care staff.

The province is offering the flu shot to all Islanders for free this years. It has not protected against the flu as well as standard flu shots of late, according to a committee of experts that advises the CDC.

Early signs and symptoms include sudden onset of fever, headache, sore muscles and cough.

"I have not gotten my flu vaccines".
