Almost half of Edmontonians won’t get flu shot

During the 2017-18 flu season - the deadliest flu season in four decades - 80,000 Americans died, including 180 children. My number one recommendation is that getting the flu shot is the most important thing to prevent unnecessary illness.

"The flu isn't something you want to get or share with others", Courtney said, in the release.

"A flu vaccine given during pregnancy helps protect the baby from flu infection for several months after birth, before he or she is old enough to be vaccinated themselves", the CDC reported. The child, the first to die in the state, had not received a flu vaccination.

"We got our older boys vaccinated, but my husband and I didn't worry about getting ourselves vaccinated", Moise said.
