Hey, here's a free flu vaccination clinic in Virginia Beach

Windsor-Essex has its first confirmed case of influenza early November

Cayman's Public Health Department was encouraging everyone on Monday (5 November), from visitors to residents, to get vaccinated against flu.

Experts agree that the 2017-2018 vaccine was not a "good match" - but that doesn't mean that the vaccine was completely ineffective! "The flu vaccine is an inactivated virus, that is (injected), so it's not infectious, and so it can not give you the flu".

NHS North Cumbria Clinical Commissioning Group's Clinical Lead for Children Dr Amanda Boardman said:"It can be a stressful time for all the family when a child is poorly so it makes sense to take easy steps, like the free children's flu vaccine, to help prevent your little one from getting poorly". But the CDC estimates that only about 60 percent of kids 6 months to 17 years of age have gotten a flu shot in recent years, and that rate dipped a bit last year for kids 6 months to 4 years old.

"Viruses tend to mutate and change quite rapidly, so every season the vaccine changes to adapt to the new type of virus that might be circulating".

You get the flu by breathing. Contact your GP surgery for the free flu vaccine.

Remind patients that flu vaccines protect them and their loved ones.

Need to get your flu vaccine? They also urge people to stay at home if they are sick. Seniors respond less well to vaccines than younger people because, as we age, our immune system functions less well.

But exactly how strong the shot should be, and whether additional injections would boost immunity, requires more study.

In the meantime, an easy and much-neglected intervention would be for public health officials and the media to make the public more aware of the now available anti-flu medications, Tamiflu, Relenza, and Rapivab, that can both prevent the flu and also shorten the duration and severity of the illness, should it occur. And, as reminder, having received a flu shot in March 2018 has nothing to do with this season.

While we call it "the flu" in general, influenza can actually be caused by various strains, which evolve.
