Flu Can Be A Killer But Some Refuse To Take A Shot

A nurse administers a flu shot at Perry Memorial Hospital in Princeton, Illinois, on October 12, 2017. Additionally, a spike in the number of people opting out of flu vaccines can explain the deadliness of the recent season. What started as a little coughing and fatigue ended with two blood transfusions and a diagnosis of congestive heart failure weeks later. The process takes at least six months, allowing time for circulating viruses to change and adapt. "It is important to be prepared during this flu season, and we are dedicated to supporting our community by providing patients with these essential vaccinations and educating them on additional measures they can take to help reduce their risk of getting the flu". Of those 391 deaths, 290 were people age 65 and older and seven were children under the age of 18.

A group of city and county officials announced plans on Wednesday to fight back against the flu virus in San Diego during this flu season.

Dr. Horne says flu season usually lasts from October or November to March or April each year.

Westminster's health center nurse, Melissa Baron, discussed the flu and it's symptoms last week.

The flu shot is approved for use in people 6 months of age and older, including healthy people and people with chronic medical conditions.

"Getting the flu vaccine is important for the health of all Manitobans, but especially for those at increased risk of serious illness from the flu, their caregivers, and close family and friends", said Health, Seniors and Active Living Minister Cameron Friesen, who received his vaccination this morning at Morden Drugstore.

That was the case for Haynes.

Your best protection against the flu is to get your shot, but Mansourian-Christakos also advises being vigilant with hand washing this time of year, and teaching children at home to do so as well. "It's not that big of a deal.' That was my attitude about it". Still, about 900,000 people were hospitalized because of influenza, and about 80,000 people, including 180 children (most of them unvaccinated), died during the 2017-2018 flu season, the deadliest in decades.

Dr. George Carson, an obstetrician who practices maternal fetal medicine at Regina Hospital, said he frequently encourages pregnant women to get their flu shots as they have more to gain by getting it than non-pregnant women do.

If Man United paid a lot of money for him, it's because he's a good player. "I think they've got the right man who can handle that sort of situation".

Science, however, supports the safety and necessity of vaccinations.

But what's much more likely is that we will be hit by a flu bug known to us, one we could guard against with a short, albeit painful, jab. They are. They're made in a lab, so what?. Influenza can potentially be a very serious illness and is highly contagious.

"They're anxious about past failures", Johnson said. In fact, most flu vaccines are "inactivated" which means they contain no actual influenza (flu) virus at all. Certain types of H3N2 can't be grown in eggs without mutations that make vaccines less effective.

Overall, the vaccine was estimated to be 40 percent effective for both the A and B flu viruses in the past flu season, the CDC reported.

Focusing on just that one number, however, is shortsighted because it lumps all strains and all ages together, Munoz said. The transition from trivalent to quadrivalent vaccine formulations due to extensive research and development, to offer better protection against flu strains is a major factor to augment growth of the US influenza vaccine market over the forecast period.

One of the most controversial beliefs about the flu vaccine is that the ingredients are "poisonous", and can make you sick.

A high uptake of the influenza vaccine is being credited for a significant decrease in flu cases nationwide but experts warn that Kiwis might not be out of the woods yet.

Hilderman adds H1N1 is the strain that caused the 2009 flu pandemic, but not to worry. Please bring your Medical Insurance card to clinic.
