Flu shot today keeps the zombies away

Flu season is here and that means health authorities are launching their annual campaign to ensure as many people get their flu shot as possible.

Flu vaccine is widely available in Clark County.

"The flu vaccine is a lifesaver because flu can be a very serious and sometimes deadly disease, with potentially 1,000 flu related deaths in Ireland during a severe flu season".

After the worst flu season in recent years, the Queensland Government has announced up to 300,000 children across Queensland would be eligible for a free flu vaccination next year.

The CDC also recommends against the nasal spray version of the vaccine.

"It can take up to two weeks for protection to kick in, so you don't want to wait until flu is widely circulating before you get your shot", he said. Scientists at the University of Arizona have shown evidence that your phone carries 10 times as much bacteria than the average toilet seat.

The Delaware Division of Public Health (DPH) has found the state's first laboratory-confirmed cases of influenza for the 2017-2018 flu season. In severe cases, however, the virus can lead to risky complications resulting in hospitalization or even death.

"The best ways to help protect yourself and those around you from influenza are to get immunized, wash your hands frequently, and to cough or sneeze into your elbow or a tissue".

A year ago saw an increase in influenza outbreaks at local hospitals, long term care homes and retirement homes with 24 confirmed out breaks.

Even North Carolina First Lady Kristin Cooper joined in with the encouragement, asking residents to be proactive and get their flu vaccination. Germs spread this way.

Symptoms can include fever, headache, runny nose, sore throat, or cough. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand cleaner.

In addition to the clinics the SCHSA will offer flu vaccinations at their office at 820 Scenic Drive in Modesto. Trivalent vaccines are made to protect against three flu viruses - two influenza A (H1N1 and H3N2) viruses, and an influenza B virus.
