Brown County Health Department Encourages Flu Vaccinations

People with chronic illnesses at risk of severe flu

"Prevention is better than cure", she said, adding: "it is quite important to take the vaccines instead of being absent from work for several days because of getting the flu, or passing it on to someone else". There are other newer methods, like the cell-based flu vaccines, which was only approved since 2012, and the recombinant flu vaccines were approved in 2013. They collect data in regards to the surveillance of the viruses, laboratory and clinicals studies and their availability of vaccine viruses.

Health unit officials are reminding everyone that the best way to protect against the influenza virus and lower your risk of flu is to get the flu vaccine. When "flu season" strikes varies on a yearly basis, but flu activity begins to heighten in October, peaking between December and February, and tapers by May. Lastly and most importantly, influenza vaccines are safe and have minimal side effects. Two children also died of flu previous year.

The flu virus spreads quickly.

May had earlier promised them that it never would. "This is an insurance policy none of us ever want to use", she said. The issue is dominating a meeting of the British Irish Council in the Isle Of Man today.

"The quadrivalent flu vaccine has about 20 percent more antigenic potency than the trivalent one", Bolden said in the release. Once a person gets sick from a pathogen, the body "remembers" it and is less likely to get sick from it again. Michael T. Osterholm, director of the University of Minnesota's Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy, and writer Mark Olshaker tracked the government's investment in universal flu vaccine research: "The National Institutes of Health has publicly declared developing a [universal] vaccine a priority, [but] it has only about $32 million this year specifically for such research". Adults with weakened immune systems or young kids can spread the infection to others for even longer times. "Don't go visit your grandpa or grandma in a long-term care home if you feel like you're sick, because you're going to be taking it into a vulnerable population".

Goodhue County Health and Human Services and Pine Island School District are lowering that number by organizing a Flu Vaccination clinic for anyone 6 months or older.

An increase in research funding on adjuvants, more effective dosing regimens (especially for seniors), and better production methods are achievable changes that would better prepare us to face flu outbreaks. Flu can cause severe illness and can even be fatal amongst those with a long-term health condition. Vaccines can and should continue to be given as requested throughout the influenza season, the CDC said. As we've discussed, flu vaccines fight certain strains of the flu that are expected to be particularly virulent.
