The Cause Final 12 months’s Flu Season Was Lethal? Not Sufficient Vaccinations

AHA: Flu Season Can Send More Heart Failure Patients to Hospital

Ott says only about 1 to 2 percent of people who get a flu shot will have fever as a side effect.

A spokesperson said, "For the public the Department of Health will run its annual "Flu Express" once again".

- As flu season heats up, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is urging Americans 6 months and older to get vaccinated.

The best way to prevent seasonal flu is to get vaccinated every year, but be sure to practice good health habits, such as handwashing with soap and water, covering your nose and mouth when coughing and sneezing and staying home when sick.

Last year's flu season was one of the more severe seasons in recent years.

Researchers at Baltimore-based Johns Hopkins University are investigating how biological sex affects patients' immune responses to the influenza vaccine. The flu vaccine is a safe and effective means of protecting yourself and your family. "Plus you are limited to what vaccine is offered: standard and high-dose and it is only 20-30 percent effective and yet some people still choose it".


California State University, East Bay's Student Health Services held a walk-in flu shot clinic between October 30 and 31 at the Student Health Center on the Hayward campus. Even healthy people can become sick enough to miss work or school for a significant amount of time, or even be hospitalized.

Getting the flu shot early allows the body to build up its immune system and beat the bug before it makes you ill.

The monitoring is done by the CDC'S U.S. Flu Vaccine Effectiveness Network, and similar studies are conducted in the United Kingdom, Canada and Finland, explains Dr. Chris Ambrose, franchise head with U.S. Medical Affairs, respiratory division at AstraZeneca, the maker of the FluMist Quadrivalent.

Getting the flu shot is at local drug store is an option for those without insurance.

The influenza vaccine does not guarantee protection against the flu but it does lower the chances in contracting it. People should take additional precautions to lower their risk, including those who received the vaccine.

Wash your hands frequently.
