What’s best for Kids - Flu Shot or Spray?

Dips in the thermostat mark the annual return of flu season. "Should a public health emergency arise, an informed community is an empowered community". "Now they're asking for it", Davis said. "That was about a week and a half ago, so we definitely have it".

Colder times of the year tend to see an exponential rise in influenza cases. The influenza virus is cyclical.

The 2017-2018 flu season was a bad one.

There is no federal or state mandate for the flu shot and students are not required to have the flu shot to attend school, but past year 80,000 deaths in the U.S. were attributed to the severe flu season we faced. The United States experienced a bad season last winter, driven by a particularly severe strain of the virus that led to more hospitalizations and deaths, especially among children and elderly. As a result, UNT is continuing their mobile flu clinics in order to be more accessible to students, which includes coordinating with Discovery Park and the Frisco campuses.

The flu is risky because it can cause pneumonia.

There are two kinds of influenza - A and B - which commonly spread in human populations and vaccines are made to target three or four particular strains of these types.

Getting the flu vaccine is simple, and it's the most important thing you can do to protect yourself and your family. The goal of the vaccine is to prevent severe flu disease.

Can a flu vaccine give me the flu?

Those predictions can be wrong, of course, but even when they are right vaccines can be mismatched to circulating viruses.

In the table, we are little by little giving us a better position for our objective. "We have to keep the mentality". It was a significant statement of intent from a team widely written off ahead of Emery's first season in charge.

Meanwhile, this year's campaign, #YourBestShot, is also reminding people in other at-risk groups to get themselves vaccinated.

The spray, FluMist, is quadrivalent and was re-approved this year by the CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices for non-pregnant individuals aged two through 49.

"We hope we'll really get the message out there and get folks vaccinated", Howerton said.

"Even if there is a chance that the efficacy rate is low, its always higher than zero", Roberts said.

Jane Devenish, pharmacist at Well Pharmacy which commissioned the research, said: "The only way to catch flu is by being exposed to the flu virus, and the virus peaks in winter".

"We are ready to help Vermilion County residents prepare for the upcoming flu season", said Nurse Coordinator Susan Fauver. "Our highest is around 33 percent". "I had lung cancer surgery 8 years ago".

County health officials have slated a series of immunization clinics next week to gird the public against a potential epidemic as OR enters the flu season.

Vaccinating children has a double benefit, the group said - as well as protecting them from flu, it also protects others, such as grandparents and siblings, as children are much more likely to infect others. The goal: prevent the virus from spending.
