Madison County Health Department offering free flu shots

A Florida child died due to flu-related illness during the week ended October 6, according to the state's Department of Health.

The child, who has not been identified, tested positive for Influenza B and was not vaccinated.

It was not clear whether the child did not get the flu shot on goal or whether the child had expected to receive it later in the season.

For the first time in five years, the Grundy County Health Department will hold a drive-through, flu shot clinic Wednesday, October 17 from 10 to 1 o'clock.

The health unit this week announced six community clinics, 33 Sarnia-Lambton pharmacies, and various primary care practitioners will be offering influenza inoculations soon.

The study, co-authored by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), found pregnant women who received the flu shot reduced their risk of being hospitalized due to the virus by "an average of 40 percent".

London Drugs said it had Insights West conduct the poll to end "common misconceptions" that prevent many Edmontonians from getting vaccinated.

It's the first reported pediatric death in Florida for the 2018-19 flu season.

The department says, the vaccine is the best defense against the flu. This changes annually, which, along with waning immunity, is why it's recommended that you get a flu shot every year.
