Fight flu - get your flu shot

Fight flu - get your flu shot”

In connection with the beginning of flu season in Ukraine, people should consider vaccination, and to follow a few simple rules to reduce risk.

The corporate offices for Walgreens and CVS, both of which offer flu shots, didn't respond to a query about the specific vaccinations they provide. Those with compromised immune systems should talk to their physician about whether a flu shot is appropriate. For most healthy people it will usually clear up within a week, albeit a fairly unpleasant week. Making sure that vaccinations would be available for students over the course of several days in a central location on Grounds, while accepting more insurance policies would surely encourage students to get vaccinated. It turned out that even though the normal vaccine is made in an egg-based culture, people who are allergic to eggs aren't allergic to the vaccine, she said.

NHS Scotland workers and carers are also offered the vaccine to help stop the spread of the virus to the vulnerable. You can not get the flu from the flu shot, and we say this over and over again.

Flu rates have been "unseasonably low" in New Zealand this year but experts are warning that Kiwis aren't out of the woods just yet.

But when it comes to getting your child vaccinated against the flu, what's best - the flu shot or the nasal spray vaccine? They're recommended by everyone from 6 months old and up. In Buncombe County, an elderly person reportedly died from the flu, while a 29-year-old lawyer from Benson died a week ago of a cardiac event following complications from the flu.

The entire flu season is long and can last half the year. But children younger than 2 years, adults 50 and older, pregnant women, young children with asthma and people with compromised immune systems are among those who should not get the nasal vaccine; they should stick with the shot. An effective vaccination program would work around busy student schedules to prevent as many appointment conflicts as possible.

Konopacka said the vaccine takes a couple of weeks to build up resistance in your body, so they recommend adults get it before November and the holiday season.

According to CDC officials, while the last flu season was one of the deadliest in the history, vaccinations helped to cut risks for over 40 percent.

It is holding four flu vaccine clinics this month at Sanford Southpointe Clinic on 32nd Avenue and 24th Street.

"Things like beer pong are a great way to pass influenza", Golden added.
