Free Flu Shot Clinics Opening Soon

Free Flu Shot Clinics Opening Soon”

The vaccine is also available starting October 21 at public health clinics, local pharmacies, and some physician and nurse practitioner offices. "This is why there are so many strains or subtypes of flu out in the community, and why we are not perfectly defended against this virus even when we take flu vaccine", he wrote. "They have the highest rate of fatality", Dr. Morris said.

Flu shots are available for $24 at both health division offices in Pontiac and Southfield. "This year, we have joined the Influenza College Challenge, put on by the Arizona Department of Health Services and the Arizona Partnership for Immunizations, to encourage college students throughout Arizona to get vaccinated". Health Promotions Supervisor Danielle Koenig says it's hard to predict flu strain and activity but getting the shot is important. The flu shot was 47 percent effective for 2018-19, according to the U.S. CDC, and in recent years has typically between 40 to 60 percent effective.

"Protect yourself and loved ones with an annual flu shot", said Oakland County Health Officer Leigh-Ann Stafford. "Vaccination can reduce the risk of getting the flu and help protect the health of others in the community".

However, research has proven that even though the flu shot can not always protect people from the flu, those who do get immunized and still contract the virus typically have milder symptoms than those who fall ill and did not get immunized.

ME has recently boosted its public health nursing workforce, Shah said, and those nurses help run immunization clinics across the state.

The Maine CDC also is conducting a public education campaign to remind women who are pregnant to get their flu shot, Shah said.

Little thinks the most vital ages to get a flu shot are ages 65 and above and children between the ages of 6 months and 5 years.
