Here’s How to Protect Yourself from a Deadly Flu Season

Here’s How to Protect Yourself from a Deadly Flu Season

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported this week that a year ago was the deadliest flu season in more than four decades, with 80,000 deaths from flu and its complications. "Everyone benefits when flu vaccination is high".

For more information regarding the flu or the annual flu drive-thru, contact 828-426-8461.

In developing this year's serum, researchers have looked at the flu types already existing that have occurred in the rest of the world, trying to predict which viruses could be expected in Denmark this winter.

Flu vaccines are not 100 percent effective. When coming for their flu shot, all clients should try to wear short sleeves for easy access to the injection site. "We will start that about October 15". We have for several years provided vaccines to many risk groups such as pregnant women and those with chronic long-term conditions. "They updated two of the strains to be more in line with what they believe is going to come around this year".

The vaccine doesn't give patients the flu, he said. "When a pregnant woman gets vaccinated, she is protecting herself as well as her future baby".

Nasal spray flu vaccine is a good alternative for children. People with the flu feel awful. He said many fears about vaccine safety are "baseless" and that vaccination remains the most cost effective way to prevent numerous deadly, contagious diseases.

People of all ages should take steps to protect themselves from the flu.

Brett Kavanaugh: Key senators back embattled Supreme Court pick
It was a surprise to Grassley, who told reporters he didn't realize the Alaska Republican would vote no until she cast her vote. Ratajkowski said via Twitter that she felt Senate advancement of Kavanaugh's nomination signaled the women don't matter.

Health care officials say it takes two weeks for the vaccine to offer optimum protection. Scientists guess what will be circulating this year, and make shots months before.

Do it for others. "More than any on record, and 80 percent of them were not vaccinated".

"Everybody is entitled to their own opinion, but it's certainly recommended to get it each year", Adkins said. That may be the difference between a weeklong stay in intensive care and a few days spent in bed with aches and sniffles.

"I echo Secretary Carey's advice - everyone six months and older, who are able to do so, should get their flu vaccine".

Cases are spread evenly across the United States, making the vaccine important no matter where you live.

A sizable portion of the patients who went to Stroger's emergency room with flu-like symptoms were not those doctors would expect to see, said Dr. Jenny Lu, an emergency physician at the West Side hospital.
