Vaccine Finder tool can help ahead of flu season

Al Rand said prevention is better than cure and so it is for the benefit of the general public that they go for their annual flu inoculations.

The numbers are not entirely reflective of how many people were infected with the flu, Eiting said, as the department only tracked hospitalized cases in Auglaize County.

That's why the CDC is urging people to act now, just before the October start of the 2018-19 flu season and get vaccinated. Certain people are more likely to have serious health problems if they get the flu. The symptoms can be brutal and keep you in bed for days, and the virus is highly contagious even before symptoms show, so you can pass it on before you're aware you're infected. "All recombinant vaccine will be quadrivalent".

2018 has already seen more flu cases compared to this time past year, according to Medical Director for Immunizations Jennifer Dillaha. These shots are usually injected into the arms and are approved for use with different age groups.

Does a flu shot give you the flu?

Vaccines typically come in trivalent (protecting against three viruses - two A-strains and one B-strain) or quadrivalent (protecting against four strains - two A-strains and two B-strains).

"Influenza vaccine's impact gets better the more people who get vaccinated".

HealthWatch Home Health will be offering Flu Shots at the Senior Center of Finney County, 907 N. 10th St., on from 11 a.m.to 1 p.m. Thursday. The nasal spray containing the live, attenuated flu vaccine (meaning that, the virus is live, but weakened so as not to cause the flu) is sprayed directly into the nose, where it takes about two weeks for the vaccine to take full effect. During last winter's flu season, vaccines barely worked at all in keeping seniors out of the hospital, with roughly 24 percent effectiveness.

The percentage who get vaccinated at a pharmacy stayed at 22 percent, but the percentage of employed adults who get vaccinated at their workplace fell from 22 percent to 15 percent while those who got vaccinated by a health care professional rose from 44 percent to 48 percent.
