This is the best time to get your flu vaccines

Flu striking more than usual in Windsor and Essex County this year

Health care personnel who receive annual influenza vaccination make an important contribution to prevent transmission of influenza to high-risk patients, their families, and the community. The vaccine's effectiveness depends on multiple factors - including the amount of time between vaccination and exposure to the disease, your age and health status - yet studies show that the flu vaccination benefits public health, especially when the vaccine is well matched to that year's circulating viruses. More than 40 percent of children went without flu vaccines, and about half of adults. People who have a severe allergy to the flu vaccine or any of its ingredients should not get the flu vaccine. His parents have set up a fund to promote flu vaccinations.

What about those who say that they've gotten the flu shot in the past and still gotten the flu? "It is extremely important for people to get vaccinated".

Vaccination shortages were first reported in Södermanland County in mid-November, but a health official there told broadcaster SVT that there were similar shortages throughout the country.

Young children and the elderly are at higher risk of getting severe illness, Webby said: "So by getting vaccinated, you're not just protecting yourself, but also, through herd immunity, you're protecting others". Today, the flu vaccine is in plentiful supply in America, with millions of doses produced each year.

Early rates of flu-like illnesses this season appear similar to those rates from past year. "This flu vaccine is a good match; it was updated this year to provide better coverage to the different strains of the flu", she said. When that is not possible or the condition is urgent, but not life-threatening, people are urged to visit an urgent care facility or a walk-in clinic instead of the emergency department.

The move will help it tap into a customer base outside cigarette smokers, as cigarette smoking declines in the U.S. In 2014, Altria acquired e-cigarette startup GreenSmoke Inc for $110 million.

During last year's flu season, 325 adults and five children died in Kentucky due to flu or complications from the virus, and there were a record number of hospitalizations.

There is evidence the flu can be milder and briefer in those who have been vaccinated against the flu.

In other words, you have every reason to get the flu vaccine for you and your loved ones.

While the vaccine is not flawless, it greatly reduces the chances of getting the flu and lessens the severity should one get ill. How can you encourage them to get vaccinated? They have a wealth of resources for nurses and patients on their website.
