High dose flu vaccines recommended for seniors

Flu season typically begins each year in October, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), with flu activity peaking between December and February, and, at times, lasting until May. Since, Oman is a semi-tropical country, seasonal flu viruses appear throughout the year. Since 2010, 200,000 to 710,000 people have been hospitalized annually due to the flu, and 12,000 to 56,000 died each year too, according to the CDC. The trivalent influenza vaccine for the 2017-2018 flu season includes an A/Michigan/45/2015 (H1N1) pdm09-like virus, an A/Hong Kong/4801/2014 (H3N2)-like virus, and a B/Brisbane/60/2008-like virus (Victoria lineage). Seasonal vaccine is recommended for people at higher risk such as healthcare workers, pregnant women, elderly, patients with chronic medical conditions as well as pilgrims.

"Two influenza A and two influenza B", McCue said. He added they might need to add another round of the vaccine. There is no live flu virus in flu shots. Last season, 59% of children between the ages of 6 months to 17 years received a flu shot, as did 43.3% of adults 18 years of age and older. Since September 1st, state health officials report 13 flu cases across Oklahoma. "Getting vaccinated today will help protect you and your family now and for the rest of the influenza season".

They are available at county health departments across the state.
