Health Officials Urge Hoosiers To Get Flu Shot

IN has already recorded two flu-related deaths this season.

But if you have heart disease, it's especially important to take notice. In the Hub City, you can go to the Jackson-Madison County Regional Health Department on North Parkway to receive your shot. You're most contagious before you even know you're sick. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) established National Influenza Immunization Week (NIVW) in 2005 to highlight the importance of continued vaccination through the busy holiday season and into the new year when flu activity is typically at its peak.

Adult hepatitis A vaccines are also available for people 19 years old and older. Because it is important to start antiviral medication quickly, high-risk patients should contact a health care professional at the first signs of influenza symptoms, which include sudden onset of fever, aches, chills, and tiredness.

But on Tuesday, Gruden said McCoy could miss 2-4 weeks - which would even give the 32-year-old a chance at returning this year. Alex Smith broke his fibula and tibia in Week 11 before his backup, McCoy, broke his fibula against the Eagles on Monday.

Dobbs says an estimated 80,000 adults died nationwide a year ago from the flu.

Today, December 4, the Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH) reported its first laboratory-confirmed case of influenza for the 2018-2019 flu season. In serious cases, it can cause inflammation of the heart and brain in addition to direct injury to the lungs themselves.

Statistics show that during this period, the number of influenza cases decreased by 71 per cent. There are a few theories on why this happens, including decreased strain on overall heart function and minimizing the effects of inflammation on potentially risky plaques within the arteries. There is no need for an appointment, all a Veteran has to do is come to any of the Charleston VAMC facilities or Community Based Outpatient Clinics and request their flu shot. In addition to getting a flu shot, IDPH recommends following the 3 C's: clean, cover, and contain.
