CDC reports dip in adults getting flu shots

That figure is almost double the 218 deaths reported during the 2016-17 flu season and six times the 59 reported deaths the year before.

For parents needing the flu vaccine for children, several options are available.

The Department for Public Health (DPH), within the Cabinet for Health and Family Services, is reminding Kentuckians to get vaccinated against the flu.

Some people, such as older people, young children, and people with certain health conditions, are at high risk for serious complications from the flu. She is a research scientist with the Center for Clinical Epidemiology and Population Health at the Marshfield Clinic Research Institute in Wisconsin. At least three flu-related deaths have been reported this season in North Carolina, according to news agencies. "It's not clear if there is going to be one virus that's going to win and be the dominant virus", she noted.

2 bound bodies found in NYC were missing Virginia sisters
Tala was initially reported missing to the police but the search was called off after it was discovered she was with her sister. Two women were found next to the Hudson River on the Upper West Side of the Manhattan borough of New York City on October 24.

As to the notion that yearly shots might somehow be overkill, the study clearly demonstrated that "prior vaccination was not associated with reduced vaccine effectiveness", McLean said. A few small studies, including one out of Canada, have suggested that getting the flu vaccine yearly might increase some people's risk of catching the virus, even though it's hard to explain why that might happen. But a study conducted by researchers which was published in the JAMA says that it is not so. There also was a drop in influenza vaccinations among adults in the 2017-18 flu season, according to the CDC.

Tim Lehan, pharmacist and owner of Lehan Drugs, talks about this year's flu vaccine Monday in the Sycamore store inside the Northwestern Medicine Regional Medical Group building.

The CDC recommends that all Americans aged 6 months and older get a flu vaccine on a yearly basis, with exceptions made only for those who have allergies to one or more ingredients found in the vaccines, or for those with a history of a serious paralyzing illness known as Guillain-Barre syndrome. No new pediatric flu deaths were reported, keeping the total at one so far.

The flu season runs from October-May, and people can continue to be vaccinated throughout the course of the flu season.

Protect yourself and your loved ones. The office will also offer the flu shot by appointment on Tuesdays and Fridays.

So this fall, please: get vaccinated, get your kids vaccinated, get your grandparents vaccinated, drive a senior to a flu clinic, or help quell a senior's fear of getting ill from a vaccine. Sometimes people get the flu because they touch an object or surface with flu virus on it and then touch their mouth or nose. The best way to protect children under 6 months old from the flu is to make sure members of their household and their caregivers are vaccinated.

The flu vaccine does not provide protection which will last for long, we can say that the active period of protection starts and end on different times which vary by person to person.

The findings "are reassuring and support current influenza vaccination policy", Fry said. Until then, you are still at risk for getting the flu. However, ACIP recommends that FluMist once again be an option for vaccination during the 2018-2019 influenza season for persons for whom it is age-appropriate and who have no medical contraindications.
