Experts recommend vaccinations at onset of flu season

"The strongest predictor of whether or not a person gets vaccination is whether or not they get a strong provider recommendation", Adams said. Women who skipped out on the flu vaccine, meanwhile, said they didn't believe it was effective - an assertion that isn't true. Last year, 220 residents participated in the clinic, which is almost half the amount of the 400 people who participated the previous year. "We hope [these clinics] will reduce barriers for folks to come out and get their flu vaccine this fall". Among the 80,000 flu deaths recorded last season were 180 children, of which 80% were found to have not been vaccinated, Adams said.

"It has influenza A, so it protects against both H1N1 and H3N2 strains, and then an influenza B strain".

So, what is the flu? It can cause mild to severe illness with symptoms like fever, body aches, sore throat, congestion and cough. It is important to note that not everyone with the flu will have a fever. After that, the best thing to do is stay home, get some rest, keep hydrated, and recuperate with a healthy dose of Netflix.

The free shot will be available at London Drugs next month, while a private shot is now available for those five years and older for $20.

About 80 percent of the 180 children who died a year ago from flu-related complications had not been vaccinated against the illness. Vaccination coverage remained highest in this age group - children 6 months to four years was highest, at 67.8 percent, and lowest among children ages 13 to 17 years, at 47.4 percent. About 80 percent of the children killed hadn't received a shot. "Of course, we want to get those who are young or old or have compromised immune systems, definitely want them, but everybody needs a flu vaccine". There are very few medical reasons to skip the flu vaccine. "Even if people get the flu, not getting pneumonia, not having to go to the emergency room, not dying, is really a benefit". "People with egg allergies no longer have to wait 30 minutes after receiving their vaccine".

Boris Johnson calls May's Chequers plan 'deranged' ahead of Conservative conference
A Conservative Party spokesman said the technical issue had been resolved and the app was functioning securely. And he floated a series of policy ideas, including halting the HS2 rail link and building a bridge to Ireland.

There are two versions of the standard vaccine to consumers this year. Neither type of vaccination can infect you with the flu. Experts say it tends to be among the harshest strains of the flu, with some cases resulting in hospitalization and death. Nationwide, 171 childred died as the result of influenza infection. "Those who still believe otherwise or spread misinformation are unfortunately putting themselves and others at greater risk for serious health complications from influenza, including death".

Among children hospitalized for flu last season, more than half had underlying health conditions, such as asthma, neurological disorders, or obesity.

A year ago was a unsafe one for those battling influenza. "Just a short time later died". We hope you will join us in this endeavor.

Thursday, Nov. 1 at the Western Dakota Tech, Event Center from 2:00 p.m.to 6:00 p.m. The clinics are not accepting debit or credit cards. The patient is responsible for any portion that is not covered by insurance.
