  • Brazos County Health Department says get the flu vaccine soon

It was reported that over 700,000 people were hospitalized with flu symptoms last season.

Vaccines to fight the flu can also protect women during and after pregnancy and protect a baby after delivery, the CDC said.

A 2007 CDC study found that the flu vaccination significantly reduced a child's risk of dying from influenza. The World Health Organization typically gauges flu activity to make predictions, according to Dr. Although previous year was a severe season in the United States, it was less severe in other parts of the world.

You can not get sick from a flu shot, because it contains no live viruses.

Public Health England said that it encourages action from professional health bodies to increase vaccine uptake, with PHE medical director Professor Paul Cosford saying: "There is a dual responsibility on trusts and healthcare workers to get rates as high as possible". Vaccines are available at pharmacies and most doctors' offices. And sometimes there are other viruses, not covered by the vaccine, that are circulating in your community.

According to the CDC, getting the flu shot is the most important step you can take against protecting yourself from the flu, especially since it protects you from three or four of the most common flu virus strains.

What are the best practices to prevent the flu? Any patients from Heighington who would like to have their vaccination earlier are invited to come along to one of our Saturday clinics at Bewick Crescent.

The live attenuated influenza vaccine is now recommended for use in children, Topham noted.

"It wasn't recommended for a couple of years, only as a last-ditch alternative to the injection", Topham said. The high-dose option is 25 percent more effective than the standard dose.

Flu season is coming up and for adults they should get their flu shots by the end of October.

Everyone over 6 months old should get a flu shot. This has been demonstrated in several randomized controlled trials, Tung said. For anyone who is concerned about this remember that flu does not generally circulate until well into the winter (the "flu season" officially starts in December) so waiting until October for your flu vaccination does not put you at increased risk. "Drifts can happen within a season which renders the vaccine less than effective", she explained.

She said: "By getting vaccinated against flu, healthcare workers can protect themselves, their families, colleagues and patients, making sure we have a healthy workforce and helping to reduce the pressure on services over winter".

"It lessens the chance you get infected and spread the virus", Topham added.
