Flu season started early this year

Even with a flu shot, officials said, it takes about two weeks before the "body's full immune response kicks in", according to Fran Phillips, Maryland's deputy secretary for public health.

As flu season approaches, and many people decide whether or not to get a flu shot, the Lexington-Fayette County Health Department wants to make sure everyone has the facts about the vaccine. "We recommend any licensed, age-appropriate flu vaccine, including the nasal spray vaccine, which is back this year". Nine people died from flu related illness in the South East during that period.

"This year's seasonal flu vaccine is a quadrivalent vaccine which protects against the four strains of flu virus recommended by the World Health Organisation (WHO) as the strains most likely to be circulating in the northern hemisphere this season".

People aged over-65, people with long-term health conditions, healthcare workers and pregnant women are being urged to get the flu vaccination.

THE HSE is urging Limerick people, particularly those in "at-risk" groups, to get vaccinated against the flu this winter. In addition, people who live with or care for those who are not able to get the flu shot should be vaccinated. The higher dosage shots are available upon request for anyone 18 years of age or older this year, and as usual, flu shots for children will also be available. "Getting a flu shot every year can prevent that or lessen the severity if you do become ill". The CDC reports 136 influenza-associated pediatric deaths occurred during the 2018-2019 season. It is important that all those working in frontline healthcare protect themselves from getting the flu but also prevent the spread of flu to vulnerable patients.

Community members should keep in mind to always cover their mouths when they cough or sneeze and wash their hands frequently.
