Flu season started early this year

What you need to know about flu season this year and Stefani gets her flu shot

"Every year, we see people become seriously unwell from flu and every year, unfortunately, we see people die from flu". "One of the benefits of influenza vaccine is that you can help protect people around you - and that's particularly important", Epperson said.

The flu vaccine should give a good degree of protection against these strains this winter but the virus can also mutate, making the impact unpredictable. The flu vaccine is recommended for those above 6 months of age. Flu activity typically peaks in January or February.

Residents should wear clothing that is loose around the arm so the public health nurse can administer the flu shot in the upper arm, without requiring residents to leave the comfort and convenience of their vehicle.

Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention director Nirav Shah says the time has arrived for Mainers to get flu shots.

According to various foreign vaccine suppliers, cited by Bloomberg, getting shots from the plant to the patient will be complicated due to the possible no-deal Brexit.


The flu can pose a serious health risk for children younger than 5 and adults older than 65.

Symptoms of influenza can include fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue.

The campaign is part of a renewed push from the agency to ensure all those eligible for immunization get vaccinated. "Most insurance plans will cover the shot, including Medicare".

The annual Morgan County Health Department's Flu Bowl is happening today and tomorrow at the JHS Bowl at 215 S. Church Street.

If you're vaccinated, you can significantly reduce the odds of being hospitalized for flu, he said.
