Cold spell is near, get the flu shots

Cold spell is near, get the flu shots

In addition, a 2007 CDC study found that the flu vaccination significantly reduced a child's risk of dying from influenza.

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.

Despite this conflicting advice, Public Health Solutions in Crete says some immunization is better than none, and predicting the timing of the flu is hard. FluMist nasal spray will not be available at this year's vaccine clinics.

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention the 2017-2018 flu season was the first to be classified as high severity in all age groups across the country. "So their idea was to create this challenge to bring a little competition and to encourage students to get their flu shot", said Mansfield.

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. The vaccine is good for one year.

The vaccines will be available from 8 a.m.to 6 p.m. on October 18 at the health department offices at 2747 Fourth St.in Brunswick.

Bon Secours is offering free flu shots during their annual Drive-Thru Flu Shot Day event on September 29, from 8-11 a.m.at four of their locations: Bon Secours DePaul Medical Center, Bon Secours Mary Immaculate Hospital, Bon Secours Maryview Medical Center, and the Bon Secours Health Center at Harbour View.

Also, shots made using a vaccine production technology that does not require the use of flu virus. The price of flu vaccine will vary from $35 to $75, depending on the individual's age and the type of vaccine used.

The reason you have to get a flu shot every year is that it protects you less and less as time goes on. The peak of flu season comes sometime between December and February, but the season can last as late as May. For the best protection, everyone 6 months and older should get vaccinated annually. Isn't the flu vaccine supposed to protect you from the flu, not give it to you?
