Quarter of nasal spray flu vaccines for children delayed

Flu jabs are available for some youngsters if nasal spray continues to be held

The Tuscarawas County Health Department is eliminating any excuses for skipping the flu vaccine this year.

Louisiana and Puerto Rico remain "hot spots" for the flu so far this season, but Arizona, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, Nevada, Tennessee and Texas also reported "local or sporadic activity".

"The current recommendation is for people at risk of serious illness from flu, including people living with HIV, to receive a vaccine containing four influenza strains to protect them from seasonal flu", said Dr Pollock.

More than 12,000 hospitalizations occur in Canada each year due to the flu, Toronto's medical officer of health said.

Three other clinics will open throughout the flu season to help spread the word about the importance of vaccinations.

Contrary to recent media reports, there is no outbreak of the H1N1 virus. Symptoms of the flu include high fever, chills, sore throat, cough and muscle aches.

US public health officials look to the southern hemisphere to predict the upcoming season, as the virus usually hits that part of the world before the United States.

People without insurance can still get a regular flu shot during the drive-thru clinic for a flat $40 fee, or high dose shots for $65.

The activity levels throughout Iowa are still sporadic.

She urged residents to get their shots even if they aren't getting concerned about getting sick themselves. Preventing the spread of influenza is important in protecting infants, who can not be vaccinated immediately following birth.

The project aims to provide flu vaccinations for more frontline workers aged above 18 at their convenience in their local pharmacy, as they are four times more likely to be exposed to the flu than the general public.

The majority of the flu vaccine has already been made available to Global Positioning System and schools, PHE said.

Ms Megan Cole, first author on the study, also from the Department of Infectious Disease, said: "It's been exciting to be part of this research and to conclude it with the positive outcome in terms of the restoration of vaccine-induced immunity in people living with HIV".
