Flu vaccines can save lives

Shelby County Health Department offering free flu shots

"It can be unpredictable, which is why the best thing to do is get the flu shot - particularly now, before we see the activity increase", she said.

The city is encouraging residents to protect themselves against influenza, as four flu shot clinics open in Toronto.

The clinics will run from Friday until November 15 and will be available for free through multiple health care providers and at more than 500 local pharmacies.

To reduce this threat, an annual flu shot is recommended for everyone six months of age and older, including pregnant women.

Because of that, "we wonder if (the United States) might also see a higher volume year compared to last year", said Dr. Caitlin Pedati, state medical director and epidemiologist with the Iowa Department of Public Health. Idaho and Nevada reported localized flu activity, while Wyoming is reporting only sporadic activity. These high-risk individuals, those who live or care for them or anyone that can not get a flu shot should especially get vaccinated and take preventative actions.

Contrary to recent media reports, there is no outbreak of the H1N1 virus.

Viewers there will be able to watch the entire transit, as will people in Central and South America and some parts of West Africa. The transit or passage of a planet across the face of the Sun is a relatively rare occurrence to view.

Dr Katrina Pollock, from the Department of Infectious Disease at Imperial, led a team which found that the flu vaccine triggered effective immune responses in people living with HIV who were taking ART and in whom HIV was fully suppressed.

Herd immunity is the concept of immunizing large swaths of a population against illnesses to prevent outbreaks.

In addition to being vaccinated, it is important to practice good health habits to limit the spread of infectious conditions.

"We do tend to see an uptick in flu cases here on campus after those breaks", said Bender.

The Detroit Free Press is reporting that Oakland county's heath division announced a 69-year-old man is dead due to the flu.

The UW Wellness Center will hold a flu shot clinic for benefitted staff and faculty today. This season your health care provider may be offering several different kinds of injectable influenza vaccines, such as the regular version or high dose version for those over 65.
