Get flu shot now for best protection

Flu season A girl from Melbourne eight years old dies

Those who feel sick before that have probably caught a common cold due to fluctuating temperatures. Flublok Quadrivalent, approved past year, may also provide better protection for people 50 and older.

Influenza, or the flu, is an infection that can be caused by several types of influenza virus.

But Dr. David Colby with the Chatham-Kent Public Health Unit said "no person on Earth" could say how the local flu season will roll out this year because it hasn't started yet.

Flu-related hospitalizations since 2010 ranged from 140,000 to 710,000, according to the CDC. But there have been no reports of flu deaths for kids or adults so far this year, she said.

High-dose flu vaccinations and pneumonia vaccinations are also offered for those over age 65.

Flu season is just around the corner, and it's that time when everyone asks, "Should I get a flu shot?".

Flu vaccines are created to trigger the development of antibodies in charge of protecting an individual against infection with the viruses contained in the shot.

The quadrivalent vaccines are created to protect against the already mentioned viruses plus an additional B virus.

The police was accused by many for not doing their investigation properly and they were even accused of tempering the evidences. The couple was awarded life sentence by a special CBI court in Ghaziabad on November 26, 2013, a day after their conviction.

In Idaho, a state resident has died in what health officials are saying is their first flu death of the season. The University of Wyoming is offering a flu shot clinic to students seeking prevention of the flu. "We don't know exactly, but we want to be prepared for that, and it's one reason why it's important to get your vaccine". Vaccination is the best protection against catching or spreading influenza, which is a debilitating and potentially deadly illness.

Sir Bruce said: "Many people are very anxious that this winter will be particularly hard - the thing that I worry about most is that we have an outbreak of flu or an outbreak of norovirus which puts an added strain on the NHS service". Those with chronic health conditions are strongly recommended to get vaccinated because the shot leads to lower rates of cardiac events.

This year's campaign aims to continue to increase uptake of the flu vaccination which is offered to those who are at increased risk from the effects of flu.

Getting vaccinated also allows you to protect your loved ones, especially the most vulnerable.

As of October 7, there have been 221 cases reported this flu season.

NHS England has set aside £10m to ensure care home workers get a free injection this year.

The flu shot is also available at many doctor's offices, pharmacies and walk-in clinics - those who are not eligible for the free vaccine will be required to pay a fee. However, they said they are seeing flu cases out there. If you've never been keen on getting a shot once a year (like about half of Americans), think about it like this: Do it so others don't get the flu.
