When are flu shots available?

Shots are available through local health care providers, pharmacies and grocery stores. "You have to remember, it takes about two weeks to kick in". The participants also filled out a questionnaire about their mood the day they got the flu shot.

"I urge everyone 6 months and older to do the same as soon as vaccine is available in their community", said Price.

"The earlier you get it, the better chances you have of preventing it", said Dr. Minior.

A just-released Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report estimate from the 2016-2017 influenza season showed mostly stagnant vaccination rates among all age groups, with small increases in those 50 and older. The most common side effects from the influenza shot are soreness, redness, tenderness or swelling where the shot was given.

It's nearly flu season, which means flu-shot season.

How do flu vaccines work? Many insurance providers will cover the cost, including SHIP and GradCare, the UI health-care plans. Serious cases of flu can result in hospitalization or death.

SCHR recommends the flu shot for people at a high risk for influenza and influenza-related complications, including hospitalization.

Symptoms of the flu include fever, chills and body aches. So were two-thirds of adults 65 and older.

The flu can be spread to others up to six feet away, most often when people with the illness cough, sneeze or talk. People can also get the flu by touching something, like a door handle, that has the virus on it and then touching their mouth, eyes or nose. Additional flu information and tips are at TexasFlu.org.

Puig also overcame two break points to trim the lead to 5-3, before Ostapenko wrapped up the victory with a huge service victor . The Latvian won a superb six in a row to wrap up the match and her first victory over Muguruza in three attempts.

You might not be able to completely avoid the virus that causes the flu, but you can add a layer of protection by getting a flu shot. If someone is infected despite vaccination, generally they have a milder illness than if they'd skipped the shot.

In June 2016, the CDC reported that the "nasal spray" vaccine was only 3 percent effective.

"The flu is technically from October 1st through, usually, May but it depends on the season", said Dr. Christy Mulkerin with the San Luis Obispo County Health Department.

"Historically they've had an intranasal flu vaccination, but studies have shown that it's not almost as effective as the intramuscular injections", said Dr. Minior.

And researchers from Stinchfield's hospital looking back three years found that kids who got severely ill from the flu were 57 percent less likely to have gotten flu shots compared to kids who got less sick, she said.

"Every flu season is different, and we don't know ahead of time when we're going to start to see flu circulation", Melissa Stockwell, a pediatrics specialist at Columbia University's public health school, told Newsweek.

And though you can ignore an unwanted houseguest, you can't ignore the flu: The U.S. Centers for Disease Control says that deaths attributed to the illness have ranged from 12,000 to 56,000 annually since 2010.

"We're a brand new office", said Robinson.
