Health Officials Stress Importance Of Flu Shots

Par8295533

Flu shots are especially recommended for those with weakened immune or cardiovascular systems, as well as high-priority groups including senior citizens, pregnant women, and chronically ill individuals.

The flu started circulating in Clark County a little earlier than usual past year, with activity picking up at the end of October.

Seasonal influenza vaccine is created to protect against the three or four influenza viruses that research indicates are most likely to spread and cause illness among people during the upcoming flu season.

Fall brings changing leaves and pumpkins - and the beginning of flu season.

Kim Jong-un and wife, Ri Sol-ju, visit cosmetics factory
The fact the factory boasts a mosaic of Mr Kim's dad Kim Jong-il didn't hurt their report card either. Her exact age is unknown and she rarely makes public appearances.

Most clinics in Montreal will begin offering the vaccine starting in early November.

Of course, the more people protected, the better protected the community. Children younger than 6 months are at higher risk of serious flu complications, but are too young to get a flu vaccine. "So it suggests the vaccine may be a good match for circulating viruses this year". The flu vaccine can reduce influenza illness, doctors' visits, and missed work and school due to the flu. The "stomach bug" which causes diarrhea and vomiting is not caused by the influenza virus, but usually by norovirus; thus, the flu vaccine will not protect you against this illness.

The flu vaccine is widely available in Clark County. For more information and resources, including the Flu Vaccine Finder widget, visit http://www.snohd.org/flu. Health officials recommend those needing a flu shot call their health care provider or pharmacy.
