  • Demand for vaccines early in 2018 also prompted the government to secure an extra 1.3 million doses

What happened? It's simple and sad. The flu shot costs $40.99 at most places, but depending on the insurance provider, the cost may be significantly less. Most people with egg allergies are able to get the flu vaccine.

"Managers should consider educating employees about the upcoming flu season through employee email blasts, posters in break rooms or lunch-and-learn meetings".

We grieve for those who died and for the families who miss them. Flu shots also don't ever cause the flu. Explain why the flu is more serious and why vaccinations are crucial.

Myth: The flu vaccine is only necessary for the old and very young. "This flu vaccine is a good match; it was updated this year to provide better coverage to the different strains of the flu", she said.

There is evidence the flu can be milder and briefer in those who have been vaccinated against the flu. Of course, you should practice what you preach, and whatever you advise staff to do, you should do yourself, to help avoid coming down with the flu or coughs and colds this winter.

Mitchell says because she had never been prone to illness, she didn't get a flu shot. As many as 35 million flu cases are expected this year, starting in October and continuing into May, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). It is suggested as a preventative measure every year because the vaccine itself changes every season in accordance to what strains are predicted to be the most present that year. One lesson we can learn is to put less faith in scuttlebutt and early reports.

In recognition of National Influenza Vaccination Week, Monmouth County is encouraging residents to get their flu vaccines in time for the holiday season to protect themselves, their loved ones and the public. As it turned out, the vaccine was 36 percent effective in adults, and almost 60 percent effective in children.

"The Army takes flu prevention seriously because of the potential impact of an outbreak on individual and unit readiness".

The benefits go far beyond that, though. Every person who remains healthy because of the flu vaccination can not pass the disease on to others - elderly people, for example, for whom the vaccine is generally less effective. We Texans who get the flu shot are protecting our communities and our state, as well as ourselves. Deaths and hospitalizations are prevented.

Kaweah Delta, which has seen a 21 percent increase in the number of staff getting a flu vaccination since 2015-16, is also a key player in helping increase the aggregate healthcare personnel vaccination rate in California hospitals from 72 percent to 84 percent in the 2017-18 flu season, according to the report. The vaccine uses a killed virus, and every batch is checked to ensure this. This is a particularly virulent, shape-shifting strain that can mutate even while the vaccine is being incubated in eggs. People who have a severe allergy to the flu vaccine or any of its ingredients should not get the flu vaccine.

Vaccinations are a significant achievement in the advancement of public health, aiding in diminishing the detrimental effects induced by harmful pathogens. "We are fortunate to have a vaccine to help us in the fight against this deadly disease". How can you encourage them to get vaccinated? Maddy Dollar, a business management major, spoke about the significance of gathering the right information when it comes to the flu shot.
