Doctors: You cannot get the flu from the flu shot

“Talk to your healthcare professional if you have questions about vaccines and what flu vaccine is right for you, ” Hogan said.

ESR virologist Sue Huang is at the forefront of a Kiwi-led study that could be instrumental in developing a universal five year flu vaccine.

Residents can get their free flu shot at public health clinics, pharmacies and some doctor's offices. This is why the CDC recommends an annual flu vaccine for everyone six months and older. Pregnant women should be vaccinated, as they are at higher risk of complications, and the transfer of antibodies to the fetus helps protect them as infants. Some have medical reasons for being unable to have the shot, but others go without by choice. Why? Try to get seven to nine hours of sleep every night and practice good hygiene by frequently washing your hands. They may be skeptical about vaccines in general. Alan Taege, an infectious disease specialist at Cleveland Clinic, told Healthline that children who are 6 months through 8 years old might need two doses of flu vaccine each season. "Everyone who is eligible to receive the vaccine will be able to get it by the end of November, which is still before we anticipate an increase in flu circulation".

It's important to note that tracking cases of the flu and even deaths as a result of the disease is a very tricky thing. "And especially if you are young and healthy".

"If you get sick, stay home".

The flu jab will also be offered to all frontline care staff who are directly employed and those services commissioned by the County Council.

In all, experts say that 27 Oklahomans have been hospitalized with the flu since the season began on September 1.

Deem and Bonomo's peer-reviewed prediction of 19 percent efficacy for this year's vaccine is based on a fast, cheap test that compares the genetic code of the vaccine with the codes of recently circulating strains of flu that have been uploaded to global flu databases. This is unequivocally false. Hospitals that make vaccines more accessible to their employees by setting up on-site stations for free vaccinations during every shift have high participation rates.

Myth: Getting the flu is not that serious.

It's time to get a flu shot.

A 20 percent efficacy means that among those who've been vaccinated, 20 percent fewer will get the flu compared to those who are unvaccinated.

It was better at warding off respiratory illness caused by the dominant B strain of influenza; about 55 per cent effective.

There are some outlying strains of the flu not covered by the typical flu shot - unfortunately it is possible to contract one of these non-vaccine containing flu strains.

As the weather changes this time of the year, many Temple Owls are gearing up for the start of cold and flu season.
