Flu vaccine delays for over-65s

While reactions to the flu shot may include a low-grade fever or muscle aches, the vaccine can not cause the flu virus.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, says everyone over the age of six months should get their flu shot this year, especially people who are most susceptible - such as young children, women who are pregnant, the elderly, people with underlying chronic diseases, including heart or lung disease, and people on medication that suppress their immune system. Severity - measured by the proportion of people with flu-like illness taking time off work and the burden on hospitals - has been low. This year, the province is providing a high dose vaccine for long-term-care residents 65 and older. The shot protects from the flu and helps to prevent the spread of the flu.

Saskatchewan residents will be able to get their free flu shot starting October 22 at public health clinics and pharmacies across the province. That means there is a window for people to get sick with the flu.

Medical and care home staff are spreading the flu because so many are not taking the optional vaccination, they said, adding that the jab should be compulsory for all front-line healthcare workers.

Lin said this year's vaccine protects against three or four strains of the flu.
