Sullivan County Health Department encourages getting flu shot early

State health officials have launched their annual campaign to encourage residents to get a flu shot.

In addition to seasonal flu vaccinations, the Sioux Falls School District is asking parents/guardians to remind their children about basic prevention effort by practicing proper hygiene.

Nationally, flu deaths also broke records, claiming more than 80,000 lives. "Vaccines are enormously safe and effective". MU Health Care Communications Specialist Caroline Dohack says this year will be unpredictable but the best way to prepare is to know the symptoms and get the flu shot.

Each year, vaccines are produced in accordance with the CDC's predictions for the types of viruses most likely to circulate during flu season. Thus, the University's single-insurance acceptance policy does not reflect the wide availability of compensated vaccines.

To protect adults and children alike from the risk of flu and its complications, flu vaccinations are available through the NHS. Hartenstine's family said her death was caused by flu-related complications.

Due to major pharmacies like Walmart and Walgreens running their own flu shot clinics in recent years, Parker said the number of patients they receive during this clinic has declined. Even though many believe that the flu vaccine is often ineffective and can, it is still the against the virus.

The newly available "adjuvanted" vaccine is expected to significantly boost effectiveness by improving the body's immune response to the vaccine.

Amongst the "anti-vaxxer" movement, the reasons for choosing to not get vaccinated range from religious and philosophical to citing a long-disproven report that links vaccines to autism.

Flu can be nasty for little children.

Both Essentia and St. Luke's give those who are 65 and older the high-dose vaccine.

Getting vaccinated if you are healthy helps to protect our most vulnerable populations.

At the same time, the doctors said that the flu vaccine may not protect 100%. But in a good year, vaccines may only be 50 to 60 percent effective, according to the CDC. Influenza can potentially be a very serious illness and is highly contagious. If you have a medical condition, such as heart or lung disease, flu can make it worse. Flu season starts in November, but doctors are recommending you receive the shot by the end of October.

No pain was experienced when being vaccinated with the flu shot, Dougherty-Wise said.

Past year the Middletown Health Department had to hold an emergency flu clinic after an aggressive season.

"The flu jab is a simple procedure which could ultimately save lives". We can best protect the people of Scotland by encouraging everyone eligible to get vaccinated early. This may result in an unwanted hospital stay and can even be fatal.

US health officials are trying to increase the rate of flu vaccinations this year after a severe outbreak last season killed a record number of children and led to spot shortages of antiviral medications like Tamiflu.

To get your vaccine or find out if you are eligible, contact your GP, pharmacist or midwife for more information. But if you miss it, you can still have the vaccine later in the winter.
