"Getting your flu shot helps protect all, including older adults, very young children, pregnant women and people with certain long-term health conditions who are more vulnerable to serious flu complications".

In interviews, students reported that convenience plays a major role in whether they decide to get vaccinated.

For more information regarding the flu or the annual flu drive-thru, contact 828-426-8461.

A staggering 95 percent of all fatalities were found to have belonged to a risk group - yet more than half had not been vaccinated.

Flu vaccines have been updated to better match circulating viruses.

Each year, the CDC estimates that almost 111 million work days are lost due to the flu, resulting in approximately $7 billion per year in sick days and lost productivity. They could even infect people up to five days after they become sick. In 1918, the flu killed an estimated 500,00 people in the US and millions more worldwide.

If you experience a low grade fever, chills, or body aches after getting the shot- it's normal. "So you think, I'll get it later". While the AFLURIA vaccine is administered by a jet injector, which is a medical device that uses a high-pressure, narrow stream of fluid to penetrate the skin instead of a needle.

Some students have been getting the flu shots because they are free.

This delayed reaction may also contribute to ideas that vaccinations do not effectively prevent flu. Student Health will only directly bill Aetna Student Health Insurance plans - students with other insurance providers will have to pay out of pocket and request a receipt to be reimbursed by their insurance. As fewer people get immunized, more people are susceptible to the flu.

For questions about the community flu clinics or to inquire about arranging a vaccination clinic at your worksite, please call the Norwalk Health Department at 203-854-7776.

The flu vaccine's effectiveness varies from year to year, but for those who still get the flu, the symptoms are milder than in those who haven't been immunized.

"If you are sick with the flu, stay home from work or school to prevent spreading it to others", de Fijter said. Good hand washing habits are important in preventing the flu; however, the best way to prevent the flu is to get the vaccine.
