County health department is offering clinics for flu vaccine

Health Officials Say Now is The Time to Get Your Flu Shot

A slight fever? Aching muscles? More than 80 percent of doses are created to protect against four flu strains.

There are, of course, several things wrong with the idea that vaccines cause the illnesses they are manufactured to prevent. Those who can't attend a flu vaccine clinic should consider getting vaccinated at their doctor's office or local pharmacy.

While a flu shot may not keep a person from catching an infection, it is known to reduce the intensity of the condition.

Flu vaccines are either made from inactive or weakened live viruses, depending on the method of manufacturing and delivery. There are also a lot of other health constraints.

Vaccines are specifically created to protect you from the flu without exposing you to a virus that will make you sick. Children 6 months to 4 years of age are considered high risk, since their immune system is still developing.

Regular flu shots are $29 and high-dose flu shots - made especially to protect those 65 and older - are $55.

The flu is easily spread through coughing or sneezing and by touching something, such as a door knob, with the virus on it, and then touching their nose or mouth. But these are not flu symptoms.

The virus also killed 180 children nationwide, the Centers for Disease Control reported.

Reed has her family vaccinated in September, ahead of the start of "flu season" which usually begins in October in Hampton Roads and Virginia, and peaks between December and February.

[2] US adults surveyed who did not get a flu shot a year ago. But this isn't because the vaccinations don't work for most people.

"I recommend getting it earlier because it takes a few weeks for that flu shot to really become effective".

Sometimes, some individuals simply aren't protected from the virus despite getting vaccinated.

Patients can come up with lots of reasons to avoid a flu shot.

"Last year was more prominent", she said.

At least five children died from flu-related illnesses during the 2017-18 season in Florida, including West Palm Beach seventh-grader Dylan Winnik, 12, who died on January 23.

From the pamphlets, the injectable, "contains inactivated virus (inactivated vaccine), given to people from the age of six months and above including healthy adults, pregnant women and those suffering from chronic diseases". "Chances are if you got the flu shot and you got the flu, you had the flu ahead of time", Aigner said.

Some of the age ranges for certain vaccines have been lowered and some vaccines were reformulated to better prevent now circulating viruses. "No trivalent recombinant vaccine will be available this season", the CDC said.
