Parish Health Units offering flu shots next week

National Influenza Vaccination Week December 2-8 2018

However, it is important to remember that regulations on mandated flu vaccinations vary from state to state. The peak months are December through February.

According to studies that were published by the Public Health Reports, among the parents who deny the importance of these recommended vaccinations, 63% say that they are scared of the side effects that will result in getting vaccinated and 78% of them claim that their children already get too many vaccinations.

Pregnant women are at an increased risk for severe illness and complications if infected with the influenza virus.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) established National Influenza Vaccination Week in 2005 to encourage flu vaccination through the holiday season and into the new year.

Myth: The flu vaccine is only necessary for the old and very young.

When people experience cold and flu symptoms, Kaweah Delta is urging the public to seek care from their personal physicians for conditions that are not life-threatening or will not require hospitalization.

Among those who visited a doctor's office, just 2.2% said the reason for their visit was flu-like illness; this is considered a normal rate for this time of year, according to the CDC.

Nurse practitioners can encourage their patients to get vaccinated by addressing any specific concerns the patient has.

Most US adults have not gotten a flu shot this season, according to a new survey from NORC, a research organization at the University of Chicago. Flu shots also don't ever cause the flu.

Many students are familiar with the term "flu", but many don't understand the illness behind it.

Serious reactions to the flu vaccine are rare. People who have a severe allergy to the flu vaccine or any of its ingredients should not get the flu vaccine. However, any patients with a history of an egg allergy or a history of Guillain-Barré Syndrome, should speak with their health care provider about options for flu vaccination. However, 41 percent of adults reported that they have not yet been vaccinated and that they have no intentions of getting vaccinated either.

Part of educating members of staff about the contagiousness of the flu virus, should include encouraging them to stay at home if they are sick.

Though the vaccine is imperfect, it lessens the severity and duration of symptoms, and those who get flu after receiving a vaccine are less likely to require hospitalization and less likely to die. It will go away. Of course, you should practice what you preach, and whatever you advise staff to do, you should do yourself, to help avoid coming down with the flu or coughs and colds this winter. The symptoms are much more severe and intense. The flu vaccine is crucial, not only to prevent flu in an individual, but also to prevent the spread of flu to those who may be at higher risk of complications.

Vaccinations are a significant achievement in the advancement of public health, aiding in diminishing the detrimental effects induced by harmful pathogens.

Insperity's senior human resource specialist, Caroline Hernandez, also recommends business should prepare for the worse during the flu season by implementing a flu action plan or an emergency communications plan in case widespread illness strikes. How can vaccinations benefit them?

Flu vaccines are not 100% effective, and sometimes the strain of flu circulating is not a flawless match for the flu strains in the flu vaccine. In some cases, people were exposed to the flu before their immune system had time to build a response to the flu vaccine.

There is evidence the flu can be milder and briefer in those who have been vaccinated against the flu. Although flu vaccines are not flawless, they are the best way to prevent getting the flu.
